msi's don't run by themselves

I am try to use altiris to install the scanner software for the HP 4850.  The installer uses several msi's. Shortly after opening setup.exe one of the msi's opens to complete the installation and the rest just run in the background. I would like to make transforms of the msi's to install over altiris, but the problem is that none of them run by them selves. If you double click any of them the "preparing to install" box comes up, but then it goes away and nothing else happens.  I opened some up with Wise msi editor but couldn't find a setting to control it.  If such a setting exists, please let me know. I need to get this working.
