Error description

  • After a  silent installation, the error return code from the
    msiexec process can be overrided by an internal warning code.
    As an example, if you are doing a silent installation on a
    unsupported platform, the error returned code value will be 1
    (the action returns a warning), when the msiexec process will
    return 1603 (A fatal error occurred.)
