Windows 7: msiexec fails with certain programs. fix?

msiexec fails with certain programs. fix?

I'm getting a fairly specific failure of MsiExec.exe
This can be reproduced at will by running the AMD - ATI Catalyst Uninstall program.
i.e. to remove drivers etc prior to clean install.
After just closing the notification [as opposed to any other action] the ATI routine continues, and finishes with no errors

I'm attaching the captures.

could it be that ati is not actually using the MsiExec?? wild guess...

I note no Event is left in the windows system event log.
