Software installed by administrator invokes the installer when run as user

I really don't understand what in our installer triggers this behavior?

The installer is a .MSI installer created by IS 2015.

Assume our software is installed by the system administrator . However, when a regular user goes to run the software for the first time, the system then tries to locate and run the installer again. After the installer 'does its thing' the software starts and runs normally from then on for that user.

Thanks , I have a feeling I have fallen into the trap of the shortcut per user.
