There's a 99.9994% chance that this error message has NOTHING WHATSOEVER
to do with the real problem here. ;)

You could try
WINEDEBUG=+relay,+file to find out more. Probably just a matter of the program
seeing some file access failure and deciding that it should report this as
an administrator problem of some sorts.
Could even be related to the new DLL file placeholders that Wine introduced

Good luck,

No programming skills!? Why not help translate many Linux applications!
(or alternatively buy nicely packaged Linux distros/OSS software to help
support Linux developers creating shiny new things for you?)
