Publisihing MICROSOFT Visio via ADS ERROR

Hello all
I have a problem with Visio (also standard adobe acrobat 6)
basically you select new package select the MSI then you select either
assign, publish or advance assign/publish you get the following error

"Add operation Failed. Unable to extract deployment information from the
package. Run validation on the package to ensure that the package is
correct."

although running the msi on its own works fine even across the network
(this is the out of the box msi too so straight from Microsoft)
the same error is occurring on adobe again straight out of the box

has anybody else had the same problem or overcome the problem??

I don't know about Visio, but you will find with Acrobat standard that the
installation will fail if run with msiexec /a. Examination of the MSI's
adminexecutesequence table will reveal the following:

If 1 Then
CanceInstallation "This installation type is not supported"
End If

You will see this error text in your application event log when you try to
publish the MSI. If you find that deleting this condition on the admin
install sequence works, please let me know -- I've been meaning to try that
but haven't gotten around to it yet.
