Another option might be that the software installs using user specific registry keys, which allow it to run for that user only, but no others. In that case, you can try reinstalling it as the new user to get those registry settings. This type of problem is really indicative of a poorly written software application however. In fact, Microsoft logo certification explicitly prohibits such requirements (though not all software vendors adhere to those requirements).
