I'd normally check the errorlevel returned by the silent installer if errorlevel=0 then success else, not so much...

If I have a burn package using the standard BA and run it in a command window, it comes back to the prompt immediately.  So if I run it with /quiet I don't know if it succeeded without checking the log.  More to the point, if the package is being pushed out to PCs with some system management software, how will it know if it succeeded?  I imagine this is a common requirement so I hope someone will tell me I'm missing the obvious...
