One, you have posted in the wrong forum. This forum is for dealing with errors returned by the Windows Instaler engine. See the link 'MSI Errors' for examples of such errors. A moderator may well move the thread to the proper forum, 'Package Development'.

Two, you clearly don't understand what an Administrative Installation Point is. Google the term, read and digest.
