A few days ago I blogged about the “Publish as Web Service” feature not working for me with VS2008. It turns out this is another case if Vista and VS2008 not being quite compatible [:(].
I was running VS2008 normally and I have User Account Control (UAC) enabled. Not that I am a big fan of UAC but I believe it is a useful step along the security road and people should leave it turned on. And I do as I preach.
But if you start VS2008 with administrator privileges, ie right click and select “Run as administrator”, the “Publish as Web Service” feature works just fine.
