There are plenty of programs that don't like to run as a regular user. Check the Application/Error log in Windows when you try to run it as a regular user.

This is not normally an issue, rather just a by-product of how the program was written. Unless you have some strict security policies you can add every user to the power user group. At work that's what we do.
