Skumar, you must be a system admin on the domain to setup applications and give the users priv's to run the program. If it only runs with administrator priv's, then local admins won't be able to do it while attached to the domain.
There are options on your domain setup in Active Directory for your users which will allow them to run applications that require admin priv's.

But, it takes a domain admin to set this up.
