Logitech Mouse Buttons Not Working In Visual Studio 2017

I love my Logitech Dark Field Performance MX mouse, but in Windows 10 using Visual Studio 2017, the buttons won't work.  (Make a sad face with me).

The problem is that the logitech program needs to run with Admin privilege.
To fix:
0. In the System Tray, right click on the "SetPoint" icon and select "exit"
1. In a file browser open "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Logitech\Mouse and Keyboard"
2. Right click on "Mouse and Keyboard Settings" and select "Properties"
3. Select the "Compatibility" tab.
4. In the "Privilege Level" panel, select "Run the program as an Administrator".
5. Select "OK"
6. Restart "Mouse and Keyboard Settings" via the start menu.
7. Enjoy the buttons on your mouse in Visual Studio 2017.
