Error reporting on a batch file

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

@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

set GUIDs=DDF96E66-E39B-4A69-B776-2DE49EBCAFBD D7D3F00A-638B-41DE-A2A3-FFC6EF034783 B1A6CB20-C032-4228-940F-AC3BC9BF6B3E 3EB41C0B-00EF-4C8B-9FF7-FF252E2F4E33 D8A08493-2F06-4EB2-A636-4392991981AB 
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
      )
)

You need to check for errorlevel after line 15, something like
start "Installing VOD" /wait msiexec.exe /i \\Domain.com\SYSVOL\Domain.com\scripts\8x8\VOD_5_6_0.msi /qn
if not errlorlevel 1 echo %date% %time% %Computername% - Installation succeeded >> \\Domain.com\logs\InstallVOD.log

For error information you would have to allow a lot of logging, and collect the different logs of reg.exe, msiexec etc. somewhere.

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
