Compaq Visual Fortran v6.6 Professional doesn't Compile !!!

Compaq Visual Fortran v6.6 Professional doesn't Compile !!!

Compaq Visual Fortran v6.6 Professional doesn't Compile !!!

Hi all.
I'm an Sys Administrator at a University and I have a problema with Compaq Visual Fortran v6.6 Professional.
Under Administrator Account everythink is ok, but under Restricted Account it doesn't want to compile.
For example I want to make a Fortran Console Application (a "Hello World" sample project) and then when I want to compile it I recive such an error :

--------------------Configuration: Folder - Win32 Debug--------------------
Compiling Fortran...
Error spawning df.exe

say.obj - 1 error(s), 0 warning(s)

I tried to give write acc to the Folder where Fotran is installed in, then I gave write access to the User Profile
C:\Documents and Settings\user...but it didn't solve the problem.
Maybe I have to give write acc somewhere in the Regedit ?
I gave Full COntrol to this Key Name (and sub keys) => HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\DigitalEquipmentCorporation
& here
..because I have installd Visual Studio 2005 too.

But still I get this error.
Please maybe somebody knows what to do !
10x in advance.
