Is ROOTDRIVE set in your application.

C:\ProgramData is a feature in Windows 7. Are you installing it on XP or windows 7?

This is corresponding to ALLUSERSPROFILE. So check in your application where it has a reference. Give more information to guide further.

Also, you might want to look through the Custom Actions in the MSI and analyse the ones that set directory properties, one of them might be resolving wrong.
