The user performing the installation of the SharePoint solution must have the following roles:

    Farm Administrator
    Site Collection Administrator
    Web front end admins

    Whether logged in user can install and deploy SP solutions
    Whether the SP Administration service is started
    Whether the SP timer service is started
