Install fails with message: "The System cannot open the device or file specified"

A user was able to install from one directory but not another. The explanation turned out to be that for the directory that failed only the user had rwx permission, but not SYSTEM and the Administrators group. It seems that msiexec needs SYSTEM or admin permission in the source directory to be able to install successfully.

Closing this as there is nothing to fix, it is describing behaviour of msiexec for reference should the same problem happen to someone else.
