You can't get ye flask (or performance counters)

I'm finally getting my feet wet with SQL Server 2008 and working
through some SSIS stuff. 2008 is running on my Windows 7 VM so new on
the new. Ran my first package and "[SSIS.Pipeline] Warning: Warning:
Could not open global shared memory to communicate with performance
DLL; data flow performance counters are not available. To resolve,
run this package as an administrator, or on the system's console."

I assume that's a Windows 7 thing so even though I'm an admin, I have
to explicitly right click visual studio and say run as admin to get
that to go away. It'd be nice if I could just sudo my way into admin
rights within the current context instead of having to shut Visual
Studio down and relaunching it.
