I connect to a client's Server (Server 2012R2) via RDP.
I always get the UAC prompt when I start the SQL tools, managemant studio (SSMS) and data tools (SSDT). If I press cancel in the UAC dialog the program does not start.
Other tools like the Sql server profiler, notepad etc does not trigger UAC.
It is not really a big issue since I am administrator but why is elevated rights neccessary? The same tools work fine on my machine with a standard user.
