Windows Installer Verbose Logging
I have had a few questions lately from various team members that some MSI verbose (L*v) logs do not show "Installed successfully".
We have various members using various Windows Installer authoring tools such as Wise or WPS, WIX, Installshield.....
With Windows Installer logging return value reference guides from https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa369778(v=vs.85).aspx
Am I right relaying the message that
Excluding the rollback action, a success is indicative by a “return value 1” for all actions expected to be processed including the last action of InstallFinalize of 1.
Obviously there are return values of 0 like when a previous product is not installed and therefore removeexistingproducts action would return 0.
In the past, I have looked for errors such as return value 2, 3, 4 etc....and just ensure my last action of installfinalize is 1.
