[wix-users] Custom Progress Dialog

What does "show the progress of each script file" mean?

I would expect that *IF* SqlScript posts progress messages, then it
probably can only (at most) post one progress message before running the
script and one after running the script. The SqlScript custom action source
code will show whether it posts any progress messages or not.
