I deployed a Microsoft provided .MSI package. It died on one machine with an error code of 1638 (http://itninja.com/question/help-with-msi-16185) Which as we know means the software was already on the machine. But my command line was this:

msiexec.exe /i "Acme.msi" /QN ALLUSERS=2 REBOOT=R REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL /L*V+! "c:\windows\logs\acme.log"

so I used the REINSTALLMODE=omus REINSTALL=ALL yet it did not reintall and I did not see anything in the verbose log file that gave any hints as to why.

has anyone seen this before and were you able to force the reinstall?

Try with ALLUSERS=1, along with your REINSTALL and REINSTALLMODE values..
