Url Reservation Modifer

Today I am releasing a tool that makes it easy to create URL reservations. Why would you want to do that? If you try to use the HttpListener class in .NET as a limited user, you need a preexisting URL reservation. Otherwise you will get an access denied message. The documentation says to use the HttpCfg.exe tool to create these reservations, but it requires you to use the verbose SDDL language. My tool has an easy to use interface: Download the binaries and the source code at CodePlex.
