When developing for Azure, VS must be run as Administrator to start the Azure emulators. Opening my Azure project after running VS as Administrator results in no scrolling ability from the mouse when in code view. In comparison, when opening the same Azure project with VS normally, the scrolling works as expected.

Hi Justin,

Thank you for that additional information. This bug is not specific to Visual Studio, and so has been routed to Windows internally as a seperate bug. Hence i'm closing this bug.

The issue is not isolated to Visual Studio. It appears to be a problem in anything that requires elevated permissions. For example, I get no scrolling in Task Manager or Device Manager.

Thanks for your feedback. We'd like some more information to further investigate this issue. Is this an issue only with Visual Studio or does this exist with other applications too? Is this specifically an issue when running VS as admin? Does this repro on a Win8 machine with Visual Studio 2012? Could you give details of the mouse and keyboard being uninstalled - version etc.

Thanks for your help investigating this issue.
