    OS Return Code from Installer

    I am trying to return an error level/return code from the installer. Example using a program to call he installer and the installer returns a code to the calling program(similiar to a batch file errorlevel)


    Thanks for your help.

    Searching for "exit code" on our KB gives the following article which describes what you should do.

    Only for Batch File???? Help Please...

    For Win32, This KB article only mentions obtaining via an errolevel, which sounds like a batch file implementation. I need to obtain one applications return code from within another. Is this possible??? Inside App A, I set the return code. In App B, I perfrom a processWaitFor to kick off App A. The value returned here is not what was set in App A. I also tried a getExitCode, inside App B, this too is not the correct value I am needing. Again, is this possible?
