How can you run ColdFusion Builder as a non-administrator?

I always have to run ColdFusion Builder in my administrator account.  Because of our work environment this causes some issues especially when it comes to mapped drives.
How do you get around this to run it as a regular account that doesn't have admin rights?

I know that but again...I need to run this as a NON-administrator.  I'm trying to find out if there is a way to do this.

I can run eclipse as a regular user and this is built on I am wondering this can be accomplished.

I assume you're running win7 and having issues with UAC?

Not sure why you'd be having the issue. I ran flex builder 3 on 7 without UAC prompts and FB is basically the same as CFB.

That being said, if you can run eclipse without issues why not just DL the CFB plugin for eclipse and use that rather than the standalone. That's what I'm doing with my newly upgraded Flash Builder 4. Prefer it to the standalone as I can have other perspectives available in eclipse.

Funny you say that as I ended up doing exactly that and added cfeclipse.  I guess Im going to just go that route.

flex builder 4 and burriot load fine under my regular account but cf builder doesnt...go figure.

I was just curious if there was something I needed to change in cf builder but I guess not.
