When joining a domain with McAfee VSE you get the error:  Unable to create offline join information. Please ensure you have access to the specified path location and permissions to modify its contents. Running as an elevated administrator may be required.

Try disabling the "Prevent user rights policies from being altered" setting under Anti-virus Standard Protection on the Access Protection Policies or removing McAfee VSE completely until you have added your machine to the domain.

The particular user I was working with couldn't disable the setting so we had to remove the software.  I can confirm removing the software works.
