I am working on a demoshield application that will install several applications.

I need to be able to determine the success of each of the installations as the second installation depends on the successful installation of the first in order for the complete package to work.

Is there any way to get a return value back to demoshield from an application in order to determine the next action to run? Either run the next installation or inform the user that the first has failed.

There is not a way to send a return value to DemoShield from an application.

However, if you are using DemoShield 7.0, you can use the Read Registry Key Action to check a registry key of the app you just installed.

If the key is there, you know that the installation was successful and you can proceed with the other installation. If the key is not there, you can show a message that the previous installation was not successful.

I hope this helps.
