"Open with" fails with Visual Studio 2005

    Because of the way that VS operates its shortcut is setup to run as
    Administrator (this is done by Vista when installing VS, not by me). If I
    double-click on a source file in Windows Explorer, or right click on it and
    select Open With / VS, I get an error msgbox saying "Windows cannot find
    <filename>". If such operations between contexts are not allowed (similar to
    the problem with dragging a text file from Explorer to Notepad run as
    administrator), then the UI should be modified to provide appropriate
    messages.
