A couple of days ago, VS2012 started asking for security credentials in order to run. I don't recall any changes I made to VS2012. (This also makes it impossible for VS2012 to act as a drag/drop target, which is close to breaking for my project.) When I try to run VS2012 by double clicking on devenv.exe, I get the same security warning.
I don't want to run VS2012 with administrator privileges - it hobbles the functionality of VS2012.
Do I have to delete everything and reinstall VS2012? (By the way - that's not a fix for the problem.)
I have VS2010 on the same system and it runs without issue. I've run them both before on the same system without issue until VS2012 decided to stop functioning properly.
