I'm prepping to deploy solidworks from activedirectory. I have all the prereqs rolling out no problem. I have the main msi and a transform. I stuck it on a policy but it didn't work. Running on a desktop with the command 


msiexec /i SolidWorks.Msi transforms=SolidWorks.Mst /L*V "c:\users\andy\desktop\solidworks.log"


I have discovered it gets to about 99% and then rolls back without any error.  The log file is 88mb.  Right at the end of the log it says 


MSI (c) (CC:F0) [14:51:36:484]: Note: 1: 1708

the transform I'm using with key removed is



Any ideas? Does solidworks make it's own log file?
