In short, I have no idea what's going wrong.  The only difference
between admin and non-admin install is which registry hive is used
(HKLM and HKCU, respectively) but this should have no bearing on
running binaries like pdftex.  All binaries are stored in one dir and
as long as this dir is accessible to all users, everything should just
work (TM).

The error message "Can't get long name for C:\texlive" looks odd.  I
suspect that some file permission magic might be at work.  Try to
install TL in another directory (preferably on another drive) and see
if that helps.
