I have not typically needed to run as admin, that was my point, just seemed odd. Maybe this was a windows update change or a change to our antivirus&security package here at work. It might have nothing to do with SE at all... but I just did a update patch on my autocad install and didn't need to run it as admin so who knows.
I have submitted a few things to GTAC for ER, as far as I know none have been put in, guess it takes a few yearly releases to get stuff in.
@nanan00 Just putting in an ER does not guarantee you will get it, but not putting in one will guarantee you won't...
Timing wise, any ER submitted needs to be in before planning starts for the next release to even have a chance to make it into that release. My guess is that it is probably at least 18 months prior to the release to be considered, but could be less/more as it is, as I mentioned, a guess.
From what I understand, ER's from all the different customers are looked at by planning and grouped together in functionally similar buckets. The size of the bucket determines the priority outside of other considerations (product vision/direction, competitive pressures, PR's, round tables). Sometimes individual ER's are 1 off requests that are just not practical to implement. That's why some folks will post their ER # and Description here asking for other users to log an Incident Report to append to their ER in order to push it up in rank.
