Permissions error in Windows Vista

When I use <code> or <pre> to insert code samples, I get an error when I build my SHFB project on Windows Vista:

BUILD FAILED: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\EWSoftware\Sandcastle Help File Builder\Colorizer\highlight.js' is denied.

If I run SHFB as an administrator, I don't get the error.

There isn't enough context to see exactly where the error happens. Most likely it's in one of the spawned processes such as BuildAssembler so perhaps it doesn't have enough permission to access the folder. I don't recall off-hand if the SHFB Installer offers an "Install for everyone" option but if so, you might try reinstalling it using that. Granting read access for everyone to the SHFB folder would also probably fix it.
