So i have created an MSI which self heals after launching an advertise shortcut & copies some files under "C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\abcd" folder.

It works fine for an Admin & User but not working for Local admin account? Why is that? My local admin has more rights than anyone else yet still its not copying those file under "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\abcd" ? any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance guys

Is your local administrator account the System account? If so, it will fail on that account because it doesn't have the same directory structure as a user account. If its a local account, keep in mind local accounts don't have rights to network shares so you might have to copy the msi local prior to install for it to update the local admin account on repair so that it has direct access to the msi.
