From what I can find this is likely a user control issue. Some older programs like to write settings or maybe store maps in the Programs Directory. In order to protect users from bad programs messing in the program files area as well as to provide individual settings for multi-user machines, this is no longer proper programming, they should write to userdata areas. Unfortunately this can be an issue for older programs.

There are 2 choices: 1. turn off UAC (User Account Control) but this essentially shuts off some of your systems protection from malware or 2. assuming the installer offers the ability to change the program path, simply install it to C:\autoroute instead of under C:\program files\autoroute

Please note I have never used or heard of MS Autoroute so I have no evidence either solution will solve your problem, though I found solution 1 offered in other forums. Even so I recommend trying option 2 first because I believe it to be a highly probable solution and it does not compromise security for other programs like option 1 will.
