I ran filemon and regmon. And had to open some permissions on a folder. NO more ACCESS DENIED. Not able run procmon as it freezes, i guess due to a size of the log.

If any one has any ideas, will be greatly appropriated.

regmon and filemon won't help you if the installing user is locked down, even if you opened up all file permissions you'd still get that error. It needs to be done by an admin or by a distribution system like SMS, GPO, Radia or whaterver. Look at AlwaysInstallElevated, but be careful before implementing as it allows the user to install any MSI thereafter.
