Error reporting on a batch file

Alex used Ask the Experts™
How do I get this to report if it was successful on the installation?

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

Open in new window

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
