Microsoft CRM2011 prvCreate Error when adding new record to Entity

Usually this happens when current logged in user does not have enough privileges to add/modify an entity in CRM Api

Running Visual Studio as administrator and not able to add record to new Entity

Needed to go to CRM

Settings>System>Administration then selected user (windows login user)

Double click on user

Select Manage Roles from the top menu

Assign user a role i.e. System Administrator

Press Ok and then restart Visual Studio and it should work
