"I'm very concerned about the problem you've experienced and described. Although I'm not able to reproduce it, I'm nonetheless trying to make things work better. In order to narrow down the number of hypotheses and fixes I'm considering, it would help tremendously if you could post the actual values of the two environment variables Lawrence mentioned. Would you please, please provide the values of APPDATA and USERPROFILE from the Vista machine exhibiting the problem, even if those values appear to be as expected. It is fine to substitute ""myusername"" for your user name ;^). I'm asking for those values because of the MSDN documentation for APIs being used. You can see the details if you look for ""Roaming"" in:

"The path of the file creation is very strange:
""D:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\rs\??\d:\Use\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\AIR\ELS\TweetDeckFast.F9107117265DB7542C1A806C8DB837742CE14C21.1\PrivateEncryptedDatak""
because of two characteristics:
(1) d:\Use\ is using lower case drive, obviously not the system's default usage,
(2) \Use\ is not a default usage for \User\, note the prefix ""\rs\"" can append to the tail ""User"" to construct back to a good value ""User"".

So I'm wondering some environment variables on your Vista machine have been changed to trigger the file access failure.
Could you check your environment variables like APPDATA or USERPROFILE to see if they are well-formed?
APPDATA should be like D:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming
and USERPROFILE should be like D:\Users\myusername"
