Did you extract it to the Program Files folder or some other location which required elevation?

I extracted it to a folder called "Dwarf Fortress" inside of my Program Files folder.

Try installing it somewhere else instead. Vista places special restrictions on the Program Files folder. Please reopen this report if that doesn't solve your problem.
