I'm trying to setup another user account w/ bare bones stuff (for my wife) MCE2005 and HIP. I can't get hip to start from the startup menu. I also can't run hip unless i "run as" the user account that i originally installed hip in(which is administrator). This is the error i get:

Exception in module 0008FB2
Error writing to c:\program files\HIP\LASTFILE.TXT

I don't 'link' to any programs that are unaccessable to the new user (at least i think). The only thing I can think might be related is a secondary command for the STOP key that does this: (not sure if related)

EXEC(C:\Program Files\Stop Live TV\STOP Live TV.mcl|||STOP Live TV.mcl|1)
but this runs just fine if i execute from "other programs" in MCE

If you add the account to the "<machine>\Power Users" group, HIP will work when invoked as a non-admin user account.
My setup is WinXP MCE SP3 with latest updates.
Failing this, I would try making c:\<program files>\hip directory writable by the user or the "<machine>\Users" group.
