Cisco Configuration Professional 2.1 and earlier
When launched as a non-administrator, application will hang on startup. Attempting to close the application and log off from Windows will result in a report that IEC2.exe is not responding.
IEC2.exe tries to write log files to the installation folder. No intelligent error returns.
According to a Cisco Systems support representative:

As a local administrator, grant Modify access to the installation folder for the BUILTIN\Users local group. Example command line:
cacls "%programfiles%\Cisco Systems\CiscoCP" /e /t /g Users:c
The application will then launch correctly for non-administrators.
WARNING: This will expose your installation to abuse by non-administrators.
