The application is a .net application and need admin privilege to install. - If you log in as a local admin, the installation can be done. - If you log in as a domain admin, running the package by right-click and selecting "run as administrator" will pop up a message box complaining that "admin privilege is needed to perform the installation."

Domain admin is a member of local administrators group. The Active Directory server is set up on a windows 2008 server by the default installation, nothing is changed after the installation.
