Problem running engineering program using domain user account

A network user is having problems running an engineering program.  The engineering program "StormNET" runs complicated hydraulic calculations.  The user is a typical network user and is not able to install any additional software.  When the software tries to run a complicated calculation it produces and error about a file access but it does not tell me any more information about the file.  I tried giving the user write access to folder c:\program files\stormnet but I am still getting an error.

What can I do to track down what the program needs write access to be able to complete the calculation?

The user is running Windows 7 64bit.  It used to run under Windows XP.

Look for any "ACCESS DENIED" entries.
