System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException loading a project into VS.NET 2008

Recently, based on comments to this post I decided to turn $g(Vistas UAC) back on in “silent mode” using TweakUAC. Doing so allows me to run $g(Windows Live Mesh) to support folder synchronization which I’m now using to backup my blog content. The downside is that after making this change I started getting System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException errors when loading a large application into VS.NET 2008.

After a bit of head scratching I thought to change my VS.NET shortcut to launch with “Run as Administrator” enabled which resolved the error. Now, back to work!
