Pipeline fails on specific computer

I wrote a pipeline for a colleague which was working fine on my computer (and others), however when he tries to run the pipeline on his own office computer it fails to run when the ‘analyze images’ button is activated, although the pipeline works in test mode. We are both running the same version of cellprofiler on Windows 7 machines… however he does not have administrative rights on his machine.
The error code given is:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “cellprofiler\gui\pipelinecontroller.pyc”, line 2249, in do_analyze_images
File “cellprofiler\analysis.pyc”, line 115, in start

File “subprocess.pyc”, line 608, in list2cmdline
UnicodeDecodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0xe9 in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)

Any idea as to the problem, or is additional information required.
