VS 2008 "A required privilege is not held by the client"

Dec 3 2008 :: by Alex
A small tip for web developers.

If your ASP.NET application uses impersonation and explicitly sets up a user account in the "web.config" - you wont be able to debug this app in Visual Studio 2008 under Vista. You will get the "a required privilege is not held by the client" error message.

Solution: run VS2008 "as administrator".
