'The installer has insufficient privileges to access this directory: C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Microsoft Games for Windows Marketplace. The installation cannot continue. Log on as administrator or contact your system administrator.'

Did you log in as Administrator? or try right-clicking on the installer file and clicking on 'run as Administrator'
