The SerialPortDriver package, installed with CDM21228_Setup.exe, is
returning exit code 0x1 which is interpreted by the bundle as a failure.

[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:52:25]i301: Applying execute package:
SerialPortDriver, action: Install, path: C:\ProgramData\Package
arguments: '"C:\ProgramData\Package

[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:52:32]e000: Error 0x80070001: Failed to execute

[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:52:32]e000: Error 0x80070001: Failed to configure

[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:52:32]i319: Applied execute package:

[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:52:32]e000: Error 0x80070001: Failed to execute
EXE package.

As a result, the bundle rolls back the other packages. The bundle will run
the uninstall command to roll back packages.

NOTE: The bundle expects the failing package to roll itself back!

First, you see the Sparkwave package roll back:

[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:52:32]i301: Applying rollback package: Sparkwave,
action: Uninstall, path: (null), arguments: ' ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT="1"
[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:52:35]i319: Applied rollback package: Sparkwave,
result: 0x0, restart: None

Followed by the Consensys package:

[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:52:35]i301: Applying rollback package: Consensys,
action: Uninstall, path: C:\ProgramData\Package
Cache\4F3679442D5925D31D0BDCD863D5E799EB848D2C\Setup.exe, arguments:
[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:53:13]i319: Applied rollback package: Consensys,
result: 0x0, restart: None

Then the GazepointControl package which fails to uninstall as it returns
exit code 0x2:

[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:53:13]i301: Applying rollback package:
GazepointControl, action: Uninstall, path: C:\ProgramData\Package
arguments: '"C:\ProgramData\Package
[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:53:19]e000: Error 0x80070002: Process returned
error: 0x2
[1594:1F7C][2019-03-20T12:53:19]e000: Error 0x80070002: Failed to execute
EXE package.
[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:53:19]e000: Error 0x80070002: Failed to configure
per-machine EXE package.
[2D28:35C0][2019-03-20T12:53:19]i319: Applied rollback package:
GazepointControl, result: 0x80070002, restart: None

NOTE: The arguments used to uninstall the ExePackages are identical to the
install arguments! You'll want to set UninstallCommand on those ExePackages
to tell the bundle how to correctly uninstall them.

The bundle knows how to uninstall MsiPackages so you don't have to tell it
how to do that.

You'll still need to troubleshoot why CDM21228_Setup.exe is returning exit
code 0x1. If that is a success exit code, then you'll want to add an
ExitCode elements under your ExePackage element to tell the bundle to treat
it as a success. You could add more ExitCode elements to handle other
possible exit codes.


I assume Gazepoint_5.3.0.exe returned exit code 0x2 during rollback because
it was already installed but you'll want to check that as well.

To summarize, your packages are running twice because the bundle thinks the
last one failed and when it tried to uninstall the previous packages it ran
the install command because it didn't have a proper uninstall command.
