visual studio 2010 – Is it possible to configure VS2010 to always run as Administrator? – Education Career Blog

Yes, right click on your visual studio.exe -> property, go to ‘Compatibility’ tab, check “Run this program as administrator”, click ok to save.

Create a shortcut, go to its’ Properties, click Compatibility tab, under Privilege Level, check ‘Run this program as an Administrator’.
Now, everytime you double click the shortuct, it’ll run as an Admin.

VS itself does not provide this option, but you can modify the respective shortcut to always run the program as a certain user.
