It's not broken, doofus, it's out-dated.
I take it the software was written after say 1999/2000. In that case it is broken, and not outdated, there's no excuse for applications written after 2000 to assume they have administrative rights.

Assuming you are correct, Office XP, which was released after 2000, assumes it has Administrator rights. It's EULA flag is in the HKLM registry hive and not in the individual user hives. You must accept the Office XP EULA running as an Administrator. MS never fixed this - instead they charged you to upgrade to Office 2003.
