"Access denied" would indicate that the username that is running the application does not have access to the directory where the application is deployed. It looks like you have deployed the application to a directory within the Administrator username's directory tree. Try deploying to a \\server\sharename\directory UNC style directory name that the username has permissions to access. If you are doing all of this on one PC, create a directory (example: C:\DeployedApplications\), setup the permissions to allow access by the usernames on that PC and then deploy the applications to that directory.

Could you specify more about how you setup this ClickOnce Deployment? Generally you wouldn't activate a .exe file with ClickOnce. Instead you have an application reference. And most of the application files are burried in wierd temporary files under your windows's user name. So how did you use ClickOnce?
