Non-admin Windows users cannot see SDK tools

Users logged in as a non-administrator Windows account cannot see the Blackbaud SDK tools in Visual Studio. The Administrator can see the tools after logging in and launching Visual Studio. This occurs right after installing the Infinity SDK.
Before installation, the Administrator will add the users who will use Infinity SDK to the local admin group. Then install the Infinity SDK. Once complete, remove the users from the local admin group. 

Steps to Duplicate

1) Log in with a Windows Administrator account.
2) Install the Blackbaud Infinity SDK
3) Launch Visual Studio and create a new Item. Note the Blackbaud tools are available.
4) Have a non-admin log in and launch Visual Studio. Note the Blackbaud tools are not available.
