The most common solution for application errors like this, in my own experience, is one of two things:

1) Make sure that your users have high enough security rights on the program files directory for the given app.  Some apps need users to have modify (write) permissions on the folder that the executable is installed in for the app to launch


2) Change the program to run in Windows XP mode.

Usually, its number one.  If its not number one or two, then there are other things to check, like making sure you are logged into the console (use the /console switch in Remote Desktop) when installing, or setting permissions in the registry.  But the two things I listed above are the usual culprits.

It could be a HKCU issue, you can try copying the Admin's NTUser.dat over that of a test user.  Are you sure this product supports terminal services?  The permissions would be the first thing I check.  
You can always use FileMon and RegMon to see what files and keys are being used by your app when an admin runs it.  Then, check all of the locations for rights.  You will need to use regedt32 in order to change registry rights.
