SolidWorks Flow Simulation.msi hangs on install

Hello,

 

I have a very irritating issue. I've created an administrative install point to install Solidworks 2010 across the network silently to Windows 7 workstations (all 32bit).

 

All the component MSIs install perfectly except for "SolidWorks Flow Simulation.msi". This MSI only installs when a user is logged in to the console. This is obviously a huge problem for a network wide rollout. I believe that the installer is throwing some kind of error dialog, but there's nothing I can do about it. Has anyone experienced this issue?

 

My syntax for install is: msiexec /i "\\path_to_file\SolidWorks Flow Simulation.msi" /qb
