Try running this command

net localgroup administrators /add domain\user

and replace domain\user with the domain name and username you want to make a local admin, then give the software install a try.

how is this different from right click my computer --> manage --> local users and groups --> groups --> administrators --> add --> domain\user?

There may be a policy in affect that is preventing the software from installing.  Have you ran the Resultant Set of Policy on the username to see which policies would be enacted on the server?

there is no policy to prevent software install if user have right.  for ex: when I login under my login name (member of domain admin) I can install it as well as login using local administrator.  but when user B. which part of local server administrators group (just domain user) User B can't install software.

Don't forget that Deny *always* takes precedence over allowed rights in the Microsoft world.  So explicitly marking a group as Denied in secpol or group policy will affect installing software if the user is a member of the group in question.

"it still get error"... "User B can't install software"... ->What error do you get?
@IT Saige
"Don't forget that Deny *always* takes precedence over allowed rights in the Microsoft world" - not true. Especially not with software restriction policies.
