MSIEXEC.EXE Return Codes

The main external interface into Windows installer is via the executable program "MSIEXEC.EXE", 0 and 3010 (reboot required) are two "success" return codes.

If you don't capture the return code you can tell what it was from a verbose log, the end of the log file will say something like "MainEngineThread is returning 3010".
