We try to fix up the folder permissions so this isn't a problem, but it doesn't always work and for reasons that are entirely beyond me it sometimes actually gets reverted. If you would prefer to run from ProgFiles I recommend flagging both the launcher and gameclient programs to run as Administrator, since that will also disable the file system virtualization.
So is there anyway to install it to say D or F etc i dont have games on my windows drive.
