Start Visual Studio as an administrator, with a right click on the starting shortcut.

Or easier, change the proprieties of the shortcut to always run as Administrator.

When you start Visual Studio as an administrator, the copy of the application that runs in Visual Studio also runs with administrator's privileges.

A possible problem is that your final application will have the problem for all users that are not Admin on their station. Is that application written for admins? if not, be sure to test your application regularly through a regular account however, so that you can pinpoint the security issuses touching regular users as soon as possible.

If it suits your application, write the key in the CurrentUser portion of the registry instead of LocalMachine.
