      I’ve run into a ton of problems like this… the whole “run as a normal user” thing doesn’t quite pass the ‘just works’ muster, IMHO.

      What I’m currently doing is running my ‘normal’ user as an Administrator. By that, I mean my productivity user. Any actual work that needs to get done gets done using this account. I have an account called ‘research’ that is standard user, and is reserved for all activities that could open the system to vulnerabilities (web browsing, primarily). It’s a server OS, so I can switch users with very little pain. It’s also good for time management, as web-browsing can be a black hole of a time sync 🙂

      You might try this hack. To allow desktop interaction, have the task run as your normal acct, and “only when logged on”.

      I was trying to run azman.msc as administrator from a normal user account, to grant my user account the ability to create and use hyper v machines.

      No matter what I do, using runas or UAC or anything, azman.msc will not launch as though I were logged in as the Administrator account, even using /profile and /env.

      Any ideas as to why this is?

      Additionally, even with removing the hyper v role, I still don’t have the possibility of suspending or hibernating…
