Evolution 2.6.2 wants admin privileges

    I'm testing Evo after installing it with the last package that Markybob kindly made available.
    I noticed that it runs ok if I launch it as Administrator on WinXP ProSP2.
    Standard  users get 0xc0000022 Error
    (they should moreover launch the step2.exe command
    to see any output).
    I think the problem is related with permission,
    but don't know if it is due to scripts only.

      Sorry, i would like to make a precisation:
      with standard or restricted users it doesn't start neither shows errors, except launching step2.exe
      that shows that 0xc0000022 error.

      I found out the problem using File Monitor from sysinternals.com, as suggested by Tor Lillqvist.
      It was a missing permission with the msvcr71.dll that I added manually before Evo installation, because it was missing on my system.

      I added Users group with RX permission to that file and then Evo started with normal user.

      Would it be possible to add a check to the installer
      to verify the right privileges of that dll?
