General errors reading files on Vista: RESOLVED (sort of)

To anyone who's having issues on Vista, run as Administrator. Anyone have a better solution?
Having not used TOS for many months, I came back and installed on a Vista machine. Everything _appeared_ ok, but I couldn't read an Excel 2007 file. So I tried an Excel 97 format. Then I tried a csv and even single column text file: I think it's Vista's file permission restrictions.
Launching Talend Open Studio as administrator (In Vista, right-click the TOS icon, select Run As Administrator) launched and showed me what looked like a fresh repository and everything.. Ok, no big deal since my last ones didn't work Smiley Happy. I tried a simple file read, and it worked the first time.
Hope this helps!
oh, here is a sample, confusing error message I used to get when running on Vista but not as administrator:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/csvreader/CsvWriter

Preview error. Some settings must be changed.
Note: Preview errors are generally due to a wrong encoding setting.

org.talend.designer.filemultischemas.ui.preview.MultiSchemasUIThreadProcessor.nonUIProcessInThread(Unknown Source)

Another error I got was something like "Missing class error". Hope this helps.
