More context is needed...

A more complete version of the logs, along with the wix authoring.

Specifically are you doing anything unique with SetProperty, CustomAction, and what does your Directory layout look like?

I did notice one entry in the log:

MSI (s) (10:88) [11:52:59:890]: Note: 1: 2727 2:

>From what I can tell, 2727: *The directory entry '[2]' does not exist in the Directory table*

However, [2] is empty. I went through the Directory/Component/File/Registry tables. All I can think is perhaps a references to a missing property, e.g.
[SomeDir]\Foo.dll where [SomeDir] doesn't resolve

Is there a way to coax the installer to actually tell me which entry it's looking for and have it log it?
