    I installed Vs 2005 Prof. on notebook with Vista Ultimate as OS.
    In this notebook I have 3 accounts, 1 administrative and 2 as standard user.
    I know that I can use VS 2005 as standard user to debug Windows application,
    but when I run VS from a standard account, it ask me credential of
    administrator and I noted that Privilege Level section of shortcut of
    denvenv.exe, on the bar, is gray and the checkbox in this section ("run
    as...") is enable. How I can run VS as standard user? How I can disable
    checkbox in the Privilege Section?

    Basically, you cannot if you want full functionality.
    VS 2005 predates Vista and was not designed with the Vista security model in
    Orcas, OTOH, is designed for the Vista security model and will give you
    greater flexibility.
    There is a public CTP of Orcas available if you wish to check it out, but be
    aware this is a pre-beta CTP.

    Meanwhile, have you installed both SP1 and the VS 2005 Vista patch? I don't
    know offhand if they will make a difference, as I just "run as
    administrator" to do my work.
