I have recently created a script that installs Acrobat 8.0 standard at logon.  I have a VBS script that executes the MSIEXEC process.  I added this file to User Configuration - Windows Settings - Scripts(logon/logoff) - Logon.  I have placed the script in the SYSVOL folder and confirmed that it does execute.  If I add it to the machine startup it finishes successfully.  If I add it to the User logon I get this error in the msiexec log file:

Product: Adobe Acrobat  8 Standard -- You do not have sufficient privileges to run this installer.  Setup will now terminate.  

If the user account is given local admin rights the script runs successfully.  Any idea where I can look to make sure that I didn't configure something incorrectly.  I did notice that after the user account logs in the script is executed.  Is it a possibility that it is trying to run with the account credentials and not the SYSTEM?
