Title: access denied

Just installed Visual Micro.  When I try to create a new Arduino project, the following error message appears.

Unable to create new sketch

Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\test5' is denied.

Why is this occurring?

This means that you have set your sketchBook folder to the arduino program files folder. That you do not have permissions for the program files folder because vs is not running as admin. You should NOT set the sketchbook to the program files folder. In the IDE Location window clear the value that you have entered into the "SketchBook Location" then Visual Micro will prompt use the default Arduino location which is "Documents\Arduino"
