The filenames etc look OK but I wonder whether specifying the property SHORTFILENAMES may be causing the problem? I don't know for sure, as I've never tried it (it doesn't really make sense to me for an admin install, and especially not when patching an admin install).

Try doing this in two steps.
First do an admin install
Second apply the patch on the admin install MSI

May I ask why you want to create the admin install with short file/directory names as (from the SDK):
Long names are used by the installer if the SHORTFILENAMES property is not set and the target volume supports long names. Short names are used by the installer if the target volume does not support long names.

Good catch, Kim. I assumed that the admin install had already been done and the OP was trying to patch it but, as you point out, this error would be displayed if the admin install wasn't present already.
