Had to Edit local policy on which Server  DirSync was to be installed and add myself the the following:

Local Policy > User right assignment

Backup files and directories
Debug Programs
Manage auditing and security log

Once I added myself to install finished with no issues!

Enterprise admins is correct.  So credit will be given for that!  Thanks for your help!
Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
