My IT people are quite willing (in fact, eager) to do whatever it takes
(short of giving me full admin privileges) to resolve the issue. So they

workaround to allow Stat-Transfer to run its update program without actually
having to log in as admin?

Has anyone else had similar troubles and been able to resolve it?
Strange story, sounds like your IT people are not as good as mine... :-)
I'm working on a Win2000 computer as well, and I can run the StatTransfer updates without any problems. As far as I know, there might be at least two workarounds that your IT people could consider. Firstly, give you "Power User" rights instead of normal user rights. Secondly, allow StatTransfer.exe only (or whatever is the name of the program executable) to run with administrative rights.
Hope that helps!
