Forcibly Install an MSI

Today I was working out at a client site and had to deal with a corrupt installer on a development environment.  The MSI package deployed, installed, configured, then started a windows service.  Somehow the install had been corrupted meaning I couldn’t just do a regular uninstall.  Seeing as it was only a development environment I forcibly installed a later version of the MSI over the top by using the command line MSIEXEC.EXE /FVECMUS MyInstaller.msi.  Problem solved.
