As likely as not, your issue has nothing to do with Orca. Simply put, Windows Installer is unable to apply the transform. It is either not present, the path to it is incorrect or some such problem.

Run the install again with a verbose log and/or with ProcMon monitoring it. That should highlight exactly where the problem lies.

I unerringly believe that it is somewhat sub-optimal to ignore errors, particularly where installing software is concerned. It's a much better idea to fix the problem.
