It sounds like something is passing a bad command-line to MSIEXEC.EXE. It also sounds like you're on an old version of Windows Installer. Updating Windows Installer may solve your problem, but you can always use something like Process Explorer to examine the command-line being passed to MSIEXEC to see what the problem is.
