Interesting. I never had to do this on Windows 7, but I have UAC disabled. I have Vista and Windows 8 set up with default UAC settings in VirtualBox, so I thought I'd test on those. First, I copied the Dbgview.exe which I had on hand (4.76) and downloaded the latest version (4.79) to a shared location. These were my results on both VMs:
[*:3w1m6l9k]Running from the network share as standard user, 4.76 worked but 4.79 did not.
[*:3w1m6l9k]Running from the network share as administrator, both worked.
[*:3w1m6l9k]Copying to my desktop and running from there, both worked.
[*:3w1m6l9k]Setting low integrity level made no difference whatsoever.
After skimming through the thread you linked to (and having some background knowledge of integrity levels), I suppose that the low integrity level is only needed for receiving output from IE in protected mode, or other programs which run at low integrity level. Note that most apps (including AutoHotkey) run at medium or high integrity level.
