I am new to packaging, can anyone please help me with this query.
Basically is there any functionality in Wise package studio and Installshield admin studio where i am able to give non admin users the ability to launch packages that require access to files they don't have permissions to access.

Installing an app as local admin is usually done by the software distribution agent.

I don't think that any software meant for general use should require any sort of admin access to run. If you are in a windows 2000/2003 AD environment, then look at setting folder and registry permissions either via a script or a group policy to open up the areas of the machine that the app requires access to.

We are using regmon and filemon to help us creating an inf.

You say "launch packages"... Are you asking if there is a way to launch an install for an application, or the application itself? If you're asking how can non-administrators install packages themselves, refer to the following Microsoft KB article:
