06 November 2010 Admin, start, Visual Studio CI Team

imageThose of you who use the right IIS as development server should know the problem with vista and windows 7:

As long as the user account control /UAC still works you need to go the hard way via "click right" and "achieve as admin". With a little trick it´s possible to avoid all the clicks in the context menu.

"run program as administrator"

You will find this action in the calibration menu:


With a double click on the .SLN these exe will be opened:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\MSEnv\VSLauncher.exe

You will find the normal exe file here:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe

Make these calibrations on both files. Without changing the UAC you will still have the "warning dialog" - otherwise you will be reminded every tame to start VS as an admin and you must not search for "run program as administrator".

By the way: if you are used to develop desktop programs you should keep in mind that you program should be able to be achieved by normal users without admin rights as well.
