I have an application that does, I'm guessing a windows authorization before allowing an operation to occur.
I am running the app (Atmel Studio 6.0) as administrator under a user account with admin privileges but the authorization fails.
If I switch to the Administrator account and rerun the authorization works and am allowed to install extensions.
The problem is that some extensions are only installed for the current user so when I switch back over to my account those extensions are not installed.

What do I need to do to get this to run correctly under my user account?

I have tried:
Disable UAC
Take ownership of App
Elevate app privileges for user

Thanks y'all

Are you in a domain or standalone?

Standalone, it's my home computer. I've never dealt much with security and UAC much so I'm kinda at a lose.

Does the software work in XP for example?
