Almost certainly, your application is trying to write a file and/or registry value to a location where the user does not have write access. Use your favoured file/registry/process monitor to determine what that location is, then add a Custom Action to your package to permission it appropriately using a permissioning tool like XCACLS, SetACL, SecEdit, or whatever.

And, BTW, this is the wrong forum for your post. It belongs in 'Package Development'. This forum is concerned with errors returned by the Windows Instaler engine. The thread may or may not be moved by the moderator.
