Here are many of the known issues in the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 SDK 1.0.

1.  Known Issues

1.1  Run as Normal User is not supported for Visual Studio Shell development

If you are developing a Visual Studio Shell (isolated mode) project, you must log on as an administrator or, if you are running Windows Vista, you must run Visual Studio as an administrator. Running as normal user currently does not work correctly if you are developing a Visual Studio Shell (isolated mode) project.

1.2  Windows Installers (MSIs) that are produced by domain-specific language (DSL) Setup projects must be run from an elevated process in Windows Vista

A Windows Installer program that is produced by a DSL Setup project must be run from an administrator-elevated command prompt under Windows Vista, or as an administrator under Windows XP. If it is not, the installer will display a warning message and then terminate. Under Windows Vista, it is not possible to run the installer by double-clicking the installer and then elevating the installer program permissions. You can work around this by wrapping the installer program in your own setup program. The DSL will then be installed correctly when you run the setup as an administrator.
