I don't think the C++ compiler and linker are too affected by admin rights, although I can see where COM stuff might have issues with type library registration and accesses that required admin rights. I do know that native-mode debugging uses CPU debugging features (breakpoint/watchpoint registers and so on) that may not be used by .NET.


I think that's probably it. I know from a hostile user standpoint, full native debug rights are equivalent to full local admin rights because you're able to attach a debugger to OS processes and manipulate them to escalate your accounts rights. (OTOH in the real world there's a still a real difference in that only having native debugger rights requires subterfuge and advanced knowledge to affect system level settings instead of accidental oops anyone could do.) Managed debug rights just give you the ability to talk to the .net debugger but don't help with hacking the system.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
