Standard Notes Requires Admin to Launch on Windows #381

This issue is for those who wish to use Standard Notes within the corporate environment where often you cannot install applications that require administrator permissions. Standard Notes seems to install without issue, but on initial launch requires 'wmic.exe', which is an administration cli command.

Is it possible to build the Windows binary such that it doesn't require 'wmic.exe' or other administration functionality? Otherwise, it's just the web interface for those in a locked down environment.

Not sure how much control we have over this with electron-builder. I doubt this would be possible. In general though, the web app is 1:1 feature-wise with the desktop app.
