Well it's not just games that have this problem.  If you search the AppDB, you
will find this is the most common reason an installer fails.  Sometimes only
the download installer fails, sometime both.

While this is an obviously big consolidation bug, I doubt it is one "bug" so
much as several swarms.  

A lot of them are in ntoskernl, but there are some quirk for quirk issues where
a quirk is used to identify that you have administrator authority.

In some other cases a program does something it shouldn't, but somehow should
be allowed to because it is run in administrator mode.
