FC and UAC

I really appreciate all the work that has gone into FC, and I have used it for many years. I love the new XE, I love that you're supporting x64, and I even donated so I could play with and test the new features as you released them. I was very happy to see you included an installer for x64 recently- now I don't have to manually shuffle files around.

But marek, XP is dead, and has been for quite some time. There's a little important something that came out eight years ago that neither Freecommander itself nor it's installer supports, and it's not going to go away.
You cannot continue to ignore UAC. I have made two threads about how your installers won't ask for elevation. I have posted in threads by other users wondering why freecommander's internal copy, move and delete capabilities are not able to act upon system files. You have responded to none of them.
I just want to know: Why are you so silent on the subject? Why have you not even attempted the bare minimum, trivial task of updating your installers to comply with the standards dictated by every edition of Windows since XP?

Thank you for your time and your response.

I have noticed that the x64 beta installer now asks for elevation during the install process and also successfully launches freecommander as the current user, instead of the elevated user (a common pitfall).
I have also noticed that freecommander's internal delete function will call upon UAC if access is denied.

I just wanted to express my gratitude for these advances. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
