Run your application as administrator

Some of you have been using Windows Vista and already know how to deal with UAC. But for quite a few, and for me personally, Windows 7 is our first touch with UAC. Some applications need sufficient rights to complete their tasks. One of them is Visual Studio that needs to run under elevated privileges to be able to debug an application.

Since I don’t want to restart Visual Studio to get enough rights every time I need to debug a certain application, I would like to launch it with the correct privileges directly. To do this you go to the properties window of the application (in this case Visual Studio) and check ‘Run this program as an administrator'.
