Azure SDK Samples and Run Elevated!

So one of the things you’ll notice on Vista is that when you open your sample projects from the Azure SDKs (any of the Azure SDKs) location under %ProgramFiles% in Visual Studio, if you don’t have VS setup to run elevated (run as Administrator), you’ll be asked to restart VS as Administrator.

To avoid this, you can do one of two things:

1. Move the samples from the default install location under %ProgramFiles% to something that isn’t restricted by Vista default ACL. like C:\My Azure Samples (you’ll have to create this folder)

2. Configure VS to run as administrator all the time. Do do this, right-click on your favorite (or/and most used) VS shortcut, select Properties, select the Compatibility tab, then check the “Run this program as an administrator”" box.

I did both, just in case. :)
