ccmsetup.exe has stopped working (APPCRASH)

While helping a customer I stumbled upon a rather strange problem. While installing the ConfigMgr client on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 system, we got an error where the ccmsetup application crashed.

After a reboot we got the very same error. We used a bat file with a command line using the ccmsetup to install the client. When we pulled some brains together we found out that the machine were a domain controller and the account we used to install the Configuration Manager client wasn’t allowed to elevate on the machine. Once we used an account that were allowed (actually, domain administrator), it all worked fine. Hope that this can help someone.
