No wait!! It finally loaded and is running. Not sure *why* it took so long to load once UAC was enabled. But, it's running...

I re-enabled UAC and RDp basically hung on startup so UAC, at least in
my case, seems to be the source of the problem.

Oddly enough, I had it working to the point where it would launch before.

You could change the shortcut so it just launches as administrator
Setting it to XP compatibility mode seems to be working.
