On Windows the installer should check if the installing user is the local
Administrator with UID 197108, and not just a member of the Administrators
group. Installing the Execd as a member of the Administrators group (or as the
Domain Administrator or a member of the Domain Administrators group) is a
typical error because on Windows, all these users have the necessary permissions
to install a service. On Interix, this is not the case, because Interix is a
POSIX subsystem and POSIX allows only one "Superuser", which is the local
Administrator.

As it is possible to install Grid Engine as a "normal" user, too, of course the
installer may perform this check only in case of a root or admin user system.
