Ok,  now I am stuck

I have an unattended msiexec command line that I run... it runs sometimes
without problem and fails on others  when starting the IMA service.  There
does not seem to be any pattern to it.

The command line is:

 msiexec /i "C:\Temp\PS3_W2K\Metaframe Presentation Server\mps.msi"
CTX_MF_ZONE_NAME="londonzone" CTX_MF_SILENT_DSNFILE="C:\temp\MSSQL_Citrix.dsn"
REBOOT="ReallySuppress" /l*v "c:\install.log" /qb- CTX_MF_REBOOT="No"

I have the msi log from a number of failed instance.

This is a cut from a failed install instance
