Permissions setting to edit within directory

Is there a setting in InstallShield to allow our software to be able to create and edit files and folders within the directories installed when our software is installed? Without having to have administrator rights? So if our software wanted to create a new file within its own directories, it wouldn't have to ask for an admin password?

We tried following these instructions I found online:

Go to the Application Data group, Files view in the InstallShield IDE. In the Destination computer's folders pane, find the directory you want to set the permissions for, right-click it, select Properties, then click the Permissions button. A dialog box will open where you can set a Domain, a User, and the permissions, including Full Control, Modify, Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read, Write, and Special Permissions

But we get an error during the install that says:

Internal Error 27555. C\program Files\Rescuecom\rescuecom…\. The requested lookup key was not found in any active activation context.


Any ideas?
