Chained MSI (not streamed) Not Installing

I have an MSI project (BasicInstaller.msi) that I am doing some testing with to experiment with chaining. BasicInstaller.msi is set to chain another MSI named ChainedInstaller.msi. The settings for the chaining are as follows:

I want the chained MSI to remain as a loose MSI sitting in the Packages sub directory of the BasicInstaller.msi. After building the BasicInstaller.msi and copying the ChainedInstaller.msi to the correct location the ChainedInstaller.msi is never being installed.

From the log file below it appears that the ChainedInstaller.msi is indeed being marked for installation, but is never actually being installed.

Anyone have any ideas as to why? This is driving me nuts!

I think I found the problem: Property(C): VersionMsi = 3.01 indicates you're running this package on MSI version 3.1; but chaining wasn't introduced until version 4.5.
