If you do run a development environment with reduced privs then i wish you luck - one of our windows guys at work tried it for a bit, and wrote a day by day blog about it. His final reckoning was that windows is still not designed for a mixed privilege environment, and that most developer programs assume you will have full privs and will have problems without. Quite encouragingly though MS Dev Studio was the bit of his toolset that worked the best (although not entirely), so it does look as if MS are trying. I'll see if I can dig out any of his hints and tips from our newsgroups (if the paranoid lawyers haven;t imposed their "everything must be deleted from the newsgroups within 2 weeks to avoid litigation" on that group as well as a lot of the others).

I'm using Visual Studio .NET for my development, and I had to be a member of the "Debugger Users" local group for that to work (so that I could attach to a running process in order to debug it). There's also a "VS Developers" group for local website development. But beyond that, I don't need to be a Power User or Administrator, so I think it's a reasonable trade-off.

that sounds pretty cool - let me know if it goes smoothly and i'll let the guys at work know. There might even be a pint in it for you :)
