SCCM and Install Shield MSIs

I have been out of the SCCM deployment scenario for a while and now I need help to understand whats going wrong with install shield MSIs deployed from SCCM. I have a bunch of install shield packages that are failing on me for one or the other reasons. One of them had the ROT table issue which would not go away even with the popular appdeploy vbscript. So I gave in and installed the setup.exe with silent parameters. (This still works only when the user is not logged in to the machine)

Now, I have two more install shield MSIs, which return Success on install from SCCM in the verbose log but they havent actually installed. I run the same MSI manually on the system and it installs fine.

Commandline:
msiexec.exe /i PixTools-6-4.msi TRANSFORMS=PixTools-6-4.mst /passive /l*v C:\Windows\Temp\Pixtools-6.4.log

Check whether the MSI has the properties 'IsAdmin' or 'Privilged'. I routinely remove these (via a transform, obviously) if present.

I have found many installshield MSI's that are hooked to the setup.exe and can't be run separately as of late. I even found one that would not run silent unless it was called from a silent.bat. New trend I guess and it sure is annoying.

I assume these are not the standard "ISSETUPDRIVEN=1" type of MSIs?

Didn't work for them, no. I have come across a number of them in the past year and most were fairly new.

I'm also not talking about anything from IBM...

I would suggest that you generate a logfile on a manual silent installation aswell and compare the 2 logs.
