To run an installer without actually installing the product set the value of EXECUTEMODE property to "None" in the command line:

MsiExec /I MyProduct.msi EXECUTEMODE=None

That will let you to test-run your installer without actually updating the target system. 

Remember:  Well behaving custom action will honor the value of this public property.
