[wix-users] Burn: When do Error event is triggered?

I'm sorry if this is irritating, but I'm not getting clear about it.

I'm trying to invoke model.BootstrapperApplication.Error event, but in
vain. Upon all the errors I faced/tried to create, e.Status in
ApplyComplete is non-zero, but Error event never triggered.

Whenever there is any problem, I've observed following error codes with
e.Status in ApplyComplete
-2147023294, -2147023258,-2147023293, -2147024894

And upon these, I'm showing a generic error message to user, while passing
these error codes to model.FinalResult i.e.
 model.FinalResult = e.Status;

So technically, my Error handling is working in ApplyComplete event,
instead of Error event.

So please enlighten me, which errors can be captured
in  model.BootstrapperApplication.Error event handler? Just a guess, only
if BoostrapperApplication faces any issues itself i.e. not Installation

Waiting for some details
Thanks a lot.
