Open your start menu, click "Run...", type "nusrmgr.cpl", press Enter.  Click "Create a new account" and create a new Administrator account. Then log into that account and see if opening the program works. This is just a test. It's not meant to fix anything.

Open your start menu, click "Log Off" and log into the new account. Then try installing the program again and see if you still see the error.

I found solution, that program Dirlock was not starting due to .NET framework was not installed in my PC. I have installed and now its running fine. Still I appreciate everyone's response.
