Some programs can be installed by LocalPowerUsers
Other programs can only be installed by LocalAdmins


Difference is how much power LocalPowerUsers has over the registry, and thats Your problem.

Only LocalAdmins can by default change the important part of registry, but You can do the following:

1. Log on as member of LocalAdminGroup
2. Start regedit
3. Search for tcp/ip nr.
4. Make a note about the SID for network (se nr. 6)
5. Start regedt32
6. Choose HKLM\System\Controlset001\Services\{--SID--}
7. Choose the menu Security\Permissions
8. Add the LocalPowerUsersGroup
