gacutil permissions problem

Hi, I'm sure you're aware that gacutil requires admin privileges to install an assembly, and thus because I'm using a domain account, I cannot currently build npanday from source.

Would it be possible to provide an option for install:install to run gacutil as a different user, perhaps using runas? That way I could do most development as a normal user, then simply provide a password when gac installation is required.

thanks,
Craig

I used quite some time on this but couldn't get it running either.

There are some resources saying that you can do a gacinstall when you give the users the right permissions. Links here: http://npanday.codeplex.com/workitem/13179

I ended up turning off UAC.
