Is it a third party vendor supplied MSI or one that you've created?

Also I assume you've checked that the MSI installs without error.

Assuming you're trying to insert stuff you can also input in the dialogs when you don't run a silent install, it might be easier to look directly at the dialogs, find the properties associated with the different textboxes / radiobuttons etc and add these manually in the MSI with the correct values, then save as MST.

Also modify some standard stuff like AgreeToLicense = Yes and ALLUSERS=1 (or what you prefer, 1 is per-machine install)

As I've said before I find the amount of junk that gets injected when you do a response transform to be staggering...
