Ability to run Tealeaf Archive Reader as non-admin user

We regularly need to use the TealeafArchiveReader.exe to import a TLA into our Tealeaf QA environment, for some Tealeaf testing scenario. For example, a TLA from PROD, or a TLA generated using Fiddler.

This used to work fine in the past, when we were local admins on the Tealeaf servers, but now we are no longer local admins the utility fails: "Error: Access is denied. Could not create file mapping. Name requested 'TeaLeaf0000006'". Presumably this is because my account does not have sufficient permissions for the actions performed by this utility.

Tealeaf Support confirmed (TS003351118) that this utility requires admin permissions, which is a lot of access, too much, actually. We can work with our security team to request the needed access, but we cannot request to become local admins; we would need to know the specific permissions that are required. (ex. server/file/service/process)

How will this idea be used?

See above: for importing TLA files from PROD or from a Fiddler capture.
