We are locking down the access for users in Windows 7, and removing them from the Local Administrators group. This causes the Printshop to give an error on Startup"

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
 Runtime error!
 Program:The Print Shop Premier Edition 5.0PSPE5.exe
 Abnormal program termination

The program runs fine if the user is part of the Local Administrators group.
What do I need to open up to get this program to work without users being a part of the Local Administrators group?

The application encounter problems when it's trying to start the required modules. If the other users don't have access to Microsoft Visual Runtime environment, you will receive the above error. Try to give users access to read the Windows directory and partition without a writing possibility and the error should disappear.
