the problem is only when I am trying to setup a report server(actuate) it asks me to enter the administrator password,i dont know what priveliges to apply

its funny
Is the server underconsideration part of a domain. If now then do this.

type secpol.msc in the run prompt. The expand then go to local policies, auditing and enable all soughts of auditing. Run a gpupdate /force from a command prompt.

Then try to install the application and when the user name is asked check the security logs in the event viewer for any soughts of failures.  please put the interesting failures here so that i can see those.

Also in the secpol.msc make sure that in localpolicies, user rights assignment, impersonate a client after authentication, local administrator group is listed there.. if not, add it there. and run gpupdate /force and try to install the application.

logon type 3 means access this computer frm network..  Check in the security policy or do this..
Run rsop.msc.. In that expand computer settings and local policies, user rights assignment.. access this computer from network. YOu should have administrators there or add the administrator explicitly. Also check the deny access this computer frm the network right.

FOrgot to ask. Are we trying to install application on machine name MXESSWISS?? I am presumming that. Please reply if its a different case.
