I found answer
1) Do not use CAQuiteExec
2) ExeCommand using cmd.exe with the /k option to launch the command
3) at the end of the command to execute, place an & pause
This will execute the command and wait in the command prompt window. You
an type an exit command with a return value to fail the install.
