There are commands that add and delete local group membership in Windows e.g

NET LOCALGROUP

I am not sure whether such commands also work in VB but this may provide a valuable insight into why you are having such a problem.
If such a command works in VB as well...then it might be contained in your script.

It seems likely that you captured some user information when creating your installation package for VS.

Did you do a SetupCapture (snapshot)?

If so, you need to go back into your script and weed out all the mis-captured user-specific information.

Remember that SetupCapture gets anything added or CHANGED on a system... so if something in a user profile got updated during your snapshot, it ALSO got added to your script/package.

Suggestion: MAKE USE of your excluded file and reg lists. When I'm first setting up a machine to do SetupCaptures, I ALWAYS do a SetupCapture without actually installing anything and making sure I reboot... so I can SEE what changes a reboot causes.

Once you SEE what's changing, you can make better choices about what to exclude.
