Hi All,

Has anyone ever got Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 to perform without issue on a locked down desktop? I know most development tools require administrative rights to utilize, but just thought I'd ask.

Thanks for any advice.

Rich

In Visual Studio 6.0 it needs r/w access to many of the folders and ini files. it has been a long time i did this one and do not have it documented.

Thanks for the advice... but I didn't find anything conclusive... basically, I'm interested in knowing if it's even possible for Visual Studio 2005 to work on a locked desktop... I didn't want to exhaust a large amount of time going through regmon and filemon to figure out what files and registry would need acl elevating.

Thanks again.

Currently I'm developing the deployment of several developer tools in a locked down environment.

Microsoft Visual Studio 2005
Microsoft Visual SourceSafe 2005
Microsoft SQL Sever Management Studio (NOT Express)
Enterprise Achitect

All the applications start up in a locked down environment.
Soon the developers will start testing, if you want I can let you know the results.

Oh yes. Please do. With the limited testing I've done and seen, Visual Studio 2005 seems fine in a locked down desktop... I'm just afraid that a real power programmer will hit a wall somewhere.

appreciate you sharing your findings.

cheers.

That's what we will find out during the "acceptation" fase of this project.
But remember that a hardcore developer always wants to be an local admin on his "own" station.....
It's a real quest trying to change that....
