[wix-users] Command Line

I have a custom bootstrapper that launches the msi in a non-standard way. This bootstrapper UI is used to show installed instances for the msi (it's a multi-instance installer). It allows the user to manage each installed instance. I manually extract the msi and then I use Installer.InstallProduct to do the actual installation. The reason I do this is so I can control the command line of the msi. It was the only way I could find to do it. Using the UI it works good. When I try to do a "quiet" run of the bootstrapper it takes a dump. The program just stops. No logging or anything to say what happened. When the user invokes the bootstrapper at the command line I don't show any UI. I just go right to the installation and pass the command line args from the user. I feel like this is my dilemma. Because I never invoke the UI the bootstrapper may just close, but, I'm not sure what to do here. Can anyone give me a clue?

Thanks for any help,
