More experimentation with Managed C++ I mean C++/CLI and running in to an old friend: The Windows Firewall. My code wants to access the Internet, and Windows – properly – wants the user to approve this random piece of code doing that. It’s doing the right thing.
But the problem is until the user clicks approve, my application can’t access the Internet. I wouldn’t mind if it just sat there and waited. But that’s not what happens.
