I'm trying to repackage a MSI for a program called MathType.

Repackaging goes well, and I end up with a custom MSI.

I run the msi, and there is always an errors that pop up:

Error 1406. Could not write value VersionMinor to key \Products\B0489A5D4C3876348834D2104D4AC21D\InstallProperties. System error . Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.

I do have administrator access and am running the installer with admin priviledges. I'm trying to find a workaround for this error, but even with the /QB- command, I can't get it to ignore this error.

If I manually ignore the error, the program seems to run okay, with the exception of a few missing fonts.

Thank you for your time, and let me know if you need any additional information.

That error leads me to think you have repackaged an MSI. Could that be the case? In looking at the deployment tips on MathType I can't tell if it is a setup.exe that is driving an MSI setup or not. Have you seen the tips here: http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=2102

Thanks for the link, i seem to have missed the -Q switch. The silent install works now.
