Summary0001213: Admin-level installer modifies per-user directories

This should not happen at all because it is the wrong thing to do. Installing software system-wide should never result in a different outcome for the one user who did the install compared to all other users on the system
InnoSetup even warns about this fact:

Warning: The [Setup] section directive "PrivilegesRequired" is set to "admin" but per-user areas (userappdata,userdesktop,userprograms) are used by the script. Regardless of the version of Windows, if the installation is administrative then you should be careful about making any per-user area changes: such changes may not achieve what you are intending. See the help file for more information.
TagsNo tags attached.

InnoSetup 6 will make this considerably easier. I'd defer this change until we upgrade to IS6 (i.e. keep the current behaviour for OpenMPT 1.28 as noone ever complained about it)
