[wix-users] Custom Bootstrapper Application, command line usage - possible?

Your BA has to handle it...
BootstrapperApplication. Command.Display == Display.Passive ||
BootstrapperApplication.Command.Display == Display.Full
You can see how the Wix BA does this inside of WixBA.cs, in the Run method.
I'm not certain, but you may also need to implement the parsing of args to handle setting variables as well (since WixStdBA has code in it to do so).

What do you mean by "We could run it when using the standard BA"?
I use the standard BA as well and when I run it from the command line the GUI just pops up and the command line returns as expected for a Windows application. If I want to wait until the bootstrapper completes I need to execute it using start /wait.
