Removal of OS security dialog for Windows

Owner: Brian (Dev), Simona Badau (QA)

  • Expect to land the security bugs on Friday
  • Finished libmar test suite, it needs review from rs
  • Fixed some test failures on non Windows platforms (was only running tests before on Windows only elm)
  • Debugged problem due to hg fail
  • Things I still want to test that Simona cannot test manually:
 * Do a major version change on elm to make sure the version downgrade security bug
 * Test not having the MAR define defined, not having an ini file
 * Test manually setting the new error codes and make sure the fallback works.
  • QA: ^ why not? will this be covered via Automation?
  • re from Brian: These can't be tested without doing a temporary push to the repo and then reverting it.
