Windows 1709 Upgrade Issues: Most apps require elevation RRS feed

  • Question

  • My work computer just recently updated to Windows 1709.  Before this update, I had no issues with Visual Studio or custom line-of-business applications.  After the update, however, I have <g class="gr_ gr_132 gr-alert gr_gramm gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim Grammar multiReplace" data-gr-id="132" id="132">ran</g> into many issues.  First, my ActiveDirectory add-in for MMC did not work.  Using RSAT (Remote Server Administrative Tools), I was able to get this fixed.  Second, when using Visual Studio to run an application using a System.DirectoryServices reference, my application does not run.  If I right-click on Visual Studio and "Run as Administrator", it works fine.  When I try to run the stand-alone application, it does not work.  However, when I right-click on the application and "Run as Administrator", it works fine as well.  I know this might tie to RSAT, but I have never had this issue until the 1709 update.  Is anyone else experiencing the same issue?  If so, did you find a resolution, and if a resolution was found, what was that?  Thank you in advance for any help, advice, or guidance.

  • Hi Brian Poole,

    Thanks for posting here.

    Since this forum is to discuss the MSBuild (Topics including: usage of MSBuild, build customization, and MSBuild extensibility via tasks, loggers and hosting), it is hard for us to make sure that whether it is related to the Windows, the project itself or others, I have no direct solution for this issue, but I could provide you a troubleshoot for this issue. 

    Create a new application or create a new account with administrator permission, check if the new application and new account still has this issue? If you still have this issue, this issue seems more related to the windows update, you can open a new thread on the windows forum or you can try to roll back your system to the previous version. If that issue not occur on the new app or account, this issue should be more related to your project, you can try to copy the scripts to the new application.

    Hope this helps.
