the 1909 error indicates that windows can't create the shortcut link on the desktop. first try creating it manually by going to the ventrilopro directory then rt-clicking on the ventrilo.exe and selecting 'send to' > desktop

windows can also create a log file of the installation which might point out the error in detail.

if the other user is ok with manually editing the registry then follow this:

To enable Windows Installer logging yourself, open the registry by using Regedit.exe, and then create the following subkey and keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Win dows\Installer
Reg_SZ: Logging
Value: voicewarmupx

rt-clik on windows and select 'new > key'
rename key to Installer
rt-clik on installer and select 'new > String Value'
rename the string to Logging
rt-clik on Logging and select modify
add voicewarmupx to 'value data' field

i tested this method on a win10 system. it does work. i did this using the win admin acct. the file will be located in C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Temp and the file name will be MSI****.log

search the log file from the end upwards for ventrilopro.lnk to see what the file path is trying to find. creating the desktop shortcut is one of the last parts of the install.
