I supposed it would depend on the application. Which are you working with and what is your concern? Data? A copy command may get you what you are after.

If the installation is an MSI, Windows Installer supports rollback so a failure should automatically restore the application.

I wouldn't count on that if we're talking about upgrade scenario's.. It would depend on the specific implementation of the upgrade.

Most apps stage themselves in the current users temp directory.  When you start the install it will create directories/files and you can copy them from there prior to the install finishing

Why do you want to take back of application during installation?

  • What is the actual requirement? Can you please explain it clearly?
  • The only time I have done this is to harvest Install files for repackaging.
