Just kidding.

I think you have your own "works for me" Notepad runs, so your exe should also run.

What exactly does the .exe do? Did you create it yourself? Does it access the registry, files or other resources it needs permissions for?

Or maybe it's one of those Run and Close executables that close when they're finished. When you run them from a Command Prompt you may not realize that. What happens when you run the exe by double clicking it?

Alternatively, create a short cut to the exe, right click the new shortcut and choose Run As. Log in as the account with limited permissions and see if it works.

Cheers,

Imar
