Are you sure the software you're installing support alternate installation directories? Or that the parameter to specify the directory is installdir? Some MSI use different parameters.

Puppet will honor the settings you provide, and pass them onto the MSI or EXE you're calling. Try specifying the log options if its an MSI to see what is going on during the install
