    "failed to grant minimum permission request"

    I'm on uni computers at the moment and am using Visual Studio 2005 (pro ed). I'm trying to create a WinForms application. When I create a new WinForms project, all the necessary files and headers are created. However, when I try and compile it, it comes up with "Unhandled Exception failed to grant minimum permission requests"
    Since I'm on a network, does the compiler work remotely? I tried compiling a simple Console application and it worked fine. any ideas what's happening, or should I wait till the technician comes back which could take a while?

    PS: Don't tell me to use google ( thought I'd add that to prevent people getting my threads locked).

    Seems something related to your particular setup. Definitely nothing to do with C++, so you should have posted this in Tech.

    That looks like C# to me . . .

    I would definitely guess that you don't have the right permissions to access whatever file you're trying to open.

    Apologies for the delayed reply, and also for posting in the wrong forum. The technician will be back on Monday or Tuesday, so I'll have a word with him. I'm using Visual Studio, but in particular, C++. Seems strange though that they won't allow me to compile and Form Designed files, but console applications are fine.
