Disassembler fails if you are not running under elevated use

Postby galen_dog » Tue Mar 01, 2011 12:51 am

god I hate restricted Subject length.

If your account is not running under Elevated User Rights, Reflector is unable to open issolated storage and fails with little help as to how to correct this.

Error is 0x80131464

Steps to repro
1) Launch DevStudio open a project
2) Click on .NET Reflector=>Choose Assembly ...
3) Select an assembly click ok

What I expect is either a better error message letting one know how to correct this limitation or better yet to allow one to use this tool without requiring me to have Admin rights.

thx

Thanks for submitting the {SA} report for this too.

AFAIUI Isolated storage should work for any user. A quick google turns up reports of people having this problem on Windows 7 64-bit machines, where they say it occurs intermittently.

I've put in a potential fix for this, which will be in tomorrow's EAP. I'd be grateful if you could try that.

Thanks

I don't believe I mentioned this but yes this is 64 bit Win7 I'm running with.

I will check back tomorrow or Thursday, download the update and see whether your fix resolves this issue.

thx

I have tried the current build of Reflector x.399 I am no longer seeing the error regarding the mutex not being able to be opened.

I am also able to decompile and navigate into .NET assembly using the same steps which I mentioned in the orginal post.

Prior to this build I could not unless I was an Admin

thx
