VC++ Toolkit peer support- setup for least-privilege operation

P: n/a
I know the Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 doesn't have normal technical and user
support, but I have a peer-support concern.

I am encouraging people to use the Toolkit as a simple tool for confirming
and community QA on some projects of mine. I also think it is a good choice
for people who want to learn C/C++ at the command-line level.

What has made it difficult for me to encourage is the fact that the toolkit
setup and tutorial seem to presume that the administrator account used for
the install is also the account to be used for operation. Then, the examples
encourage use of the Program Files location of the toolkit as a place for
working project folders.

I have come up with workarounds for that to support least-privilege, safe
use, but it still feel clumsy:
http://ODMA.info/active/ODMref10/tools/Q050902b.htm is my early draft.

Is there a better approach that still has the user, who may be a beginner,
able to operate with good practices under a limited account?
