Webpart is only viewable by administrators

I created a new site, placed the webpart in it and then gave the person who will be managing the logins "full control" access to the site. When he logs in the webpart says "This webpart is only viewable by administrators". Does he need Windows server admin permissions? If so the webpart should be made to work for anyone that has "full control" permissions on the site so that I can setup any person to manage the users.

he should not need any windows permissions.
Im not sure why you are getting this error.
In the next version the webpart is being replaced by a layouts page, hopefully this will solve your problem.
