This is perfect example of what I said in previous email. A better solution would be to develop a declarative custom action. Maybe even contribute it to the WiX Toolset.

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.
