I'm writing a kind-of installation wrapper (Basic MSI) that I'm using to sequentially launch a series of installation packages. I want to get the status after each installation (i.e. was it successfull, cancelled or failed). I was using separate custom actions (type 66) to launch each installation, but I've changed to using one large custom action. I thought this would give me better control over the entire process (I'm launching each installation using CreateProcess).

Is there some way to detect the status of the individual installations? If I have to revert to individual CAs I will, but I'd rather not.

Thanks!
