I downloaded the 32-bit Win version, from the April 18, 2015 dated download page. On a machine running Win 7 SP1, 64-bit version with WoW installed, unpacked into a directory as required. I get the same message as the OP. This is for both testdisk and photorec. I did not run as administrator. Is there a subtle point I missed?

... it did appear to require admin permissions (or possibly network permissions, not 100% sure). You might want to add that to the FAQ :)
