Error reporting on a batch file

How do I get this to report if it was successful on the installation?

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

for %%a in (%GUIDs%) do (
     reg.exe query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{%%a}" >NUL 2>&1
      if not errorlevel 1 (
            echo Uninstalling %%a
            start "Uninstalling %%a" /wait msiexec.exe /X{%%a} /quiet

It's only the installation I'm concerned about, I just need to know if it worked or not. The reg.exe bit isn't of any real concern tbh

That would appear to make sense (as always Qlemo) thank you for your help, again... :D

Have a great day
