Just a guess: I think the localtexmf tree (or at least some
subfolders of it) needs write permission for everyone.
I think there's a Windows XP feature called "Enable simplified file
sharing and printing" or similar (I don't know exactly as I run
Windows 2000). Perhaps you have to disable this in order to be able to
explicitly set the permissions in the "old fashioned" way (from
Explorer context menu).

Does this mean "restricted" user?
