Note
All these settings works great.
But transform would not apply before unpacking *.msi file

Used these registry settings as suggested
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\8]

"NoAutoUpdateSupport"=dword:00000001
"NoRegistrationDialogSupport"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\7\Updater]
"AllowDateBasedCheck"=dword:00000000
"PromptToCheck"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\8]
"RegistrationDialogHasShown"=dword:00000001

Note
Above, note directs us to put the key in "NEWKEY" field in the transform. Instead, you need to create a new Property called: TSC_SOFTWARE_KEY and assign the key to it.

Other Property keys of interest: (set to 0 to turn off)
TSC_EVALEMAIL Show tips and tricks email signup window
TSC_EMAIL_SIGNUP sign up for Tips and Tricks
TSC_START_AUTO Run Snagit wen windows Starts
START_NOW Run Snagit when install finishes
TSC_DESKTOP_LINK Create a Shortcut on desktop

In the 'Condition' table you can control whether or not you want icons stuck in the MS Office applications.

Install Snagit, find snagit32.exe and run:
snagit32.exe /e c:\path\Snagit.reg

Now you can edit Snagit.reg. When 'Snagit.reg' is in the same directory as snagit.msi, snagit.mst it's automatically used during an install.

The Enterprise Installation/customization guide can be found here:

I used the free Microsoft Orca editor to directly modify the MSI, not bothering with transforms. Orca is available in the MS Windows SDK:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=C2B1E300-F358-4523-B479-F53D234CDCCF&displaylang=en

The MSI is downloadable on this page:

http://www.techsmith.com/snagit/accessories/msi.asp

1] In the Property table, I added a row with a property of TSC_SOFTWARE_KEY and used our Enterprise key as the Value.

2] I chose to set the following values to 0: TSC_EVALEMAIL, TSC_EMAIL_SIGNUP, TSC_START_AUTO, START_NOW.

3] I saved and copied the new MSI over to our 2003 file server, then created a new Security group and GPO to install it on boot.

Note
TechSmith is one of the few organizations that recognize the needs of an enterprise. Rather that doing a setup.exe /a to extract the signed MSI and hack it up, you can down load a MSI from http://www.techsmith.com/snagit/accessories/msi.asp.

This already is compiled with the cabs inside and some of the property keys populated. Please keep this to yourself. If other companies start making it this easy for large organizations to deploy software packagers could be out of a job.

Command Line
Denver80203's repost of Snagit's steps is incorrect at the source (Snagit). It should be:

Example:

snagit_setup.exe COMPANYNAME="The Company" USERNAME="J.Smith" TSC_SOFTWARE_KEY="5rcdp4hcexd8azahk24y7bm5a" TSC_LICENSEMODE= "Full" /quiet

Example using an MSI over-riding public properties:

msiexec.exe /i "Snagit 8.2.3.0.R1.EN.msi" /qn COMPANYNAME="DragonBall Z" USERNAME="Goku" TSC_SOFTWARE_KEY="AAAA-1111-BBBB-2222-CCCC-3333" TSC_LICENSEMODE="Full"

Note
If you want to install Snagit on windows 7 x 64 bit the Component which installs SnagitPrinter should be disabled, because it triggers windows dialog to add some system files and dll from somewhere :) during the package installation.
Just simply desable those features -
Snagit_Printe and Snagit_printer_Component

To disable popup which asks to install printer on the first run use this registry key -

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\8]
"ExtPreferences"=dword:00020000

Actually only this key helps me in Win7 x 64 bit
