Running programs from standard user account

hi here is my dilemma... i installed hulu desktop from an administrator account that i created. i am trying to run it from a standard user account.

the application was installed in c:/users/(admin account name)/appdata/local/ i cannot access the folder to run it from the standard user account.

i've already tried allowing access to the standard user account using the security tab but i can't run hulu from a standard user account.
