Visual Studio 2010 with admin privileges or crash

Hi,

yesterday I installed Installshield LE (win 7 64bit) and created my first setup-project. To successfully download the SetupPrerequisite dotnetfx35.exe I had to start Visual Studio 2010 Pro with admin rights. I don't know why this was necessary - I am admin on my developer machine.

The creation of the setup worked fine and the installation file works like expected.

Now, when I start Visual Studio as admin, I have no problems.

If I start Visual Studio without admin rights, I can edit code. I'm able to open forms in design view, but when I click on a form or any control on the form, Visual Studio crashes immediately.

Other software projects without Installshield setup-project do not crash.

Is there anybody who knows what's going wrong?

Thanks

Visual Studio 2010 with admin privileges or crash - part 2

addendum:
Now VS crashes also with admin privileges. After deleting the setup-project, there were no more crashes.

What can I do? I want to keep the Installshield setup project.

Thanks
