As ever, turn on MSI logging. In the resulting log file (in %SystemRoot%\TEMP, named as 'MSI[random hex nbr].log) look near the top. There will be an entry detailing the command line used. See if it matches your input. If not, you're entering something wrong. Normally that's due to absence of quote marks in the correct place(s).

I have seen in log file also..old pidkey is only there.Do you mean that the log file shows the old Product key assigned to PIDKEY in the command line or as a value for the property?

I had similar problem and it was because the select version of visualstudio wouldnt accept a key other than the one included (none of the keys I had available)

Just had to use the key it came with,
