Root cause and Solution:

Microsoft recommends following method to Deploy Roaming User Profiles.

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj649079(v=ws.11).aspx

When folder redirection is used, some of functionality within windows installer might fail due to permission issue.

for e.g.Disk cost calculation on the folder share on the network. \\server\sharename\%username%. If User wouldn't have read permission on \\server\sharename, installer could fail.

If the roaming profile is setup properly without folder redirection, user profile would be transparent to Windows applications.
