I rather thought you were using XP. Since the problem occurs even in
administrative mode, I think it may have to do with the Access Control
In Vista, even if you are logged in as administrator, you don't actually receive administrative privileges unless you run the process with elevated privileges, which means going through UAC. I'm not sure why the install command won't work at all even when it is not installing to a system folder; perhaps the executable is configured as requiring elevation. You should be able to run the entire shell with elevation, but I can't remember how to do this - I don't run Vista here.
