Also the use of a tool like Procmon ( regmon . filemon) could give you hints why something wouldn't work in a locked enviironment

Per-machine advertisement followed by installation by a normal user account is the most comprehensive test for this situation.
As an administrator use the following command line to advertise the application to the local machine:
msiexec.exe /jm package.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qb
Note: No package components will actually be installed, MSI will simply install the advertised shortcuts and icons, file types and extensions, COM class registration, and package installation information.
Next, logon with a normal user account and trigger the installation process by running the shortcut or via a file type association. The application should start and run with no problems at this point. Be sure to make changes to settings, toolbars, and other preferences- then exit and relaunch the application to ensure such information is capable of being retained in this security context.
