blocking silent install?

IA gurus,

i've added in silent mode support to my installer, so i can now install it fine via setup.exe -i silent. however, this command returns immediately, and i'm left monitoring setup.exe execution in task manager to determine process completion.

one of the primary values of adding in this silent option is the ability to perform automated installs, but these automations need to know when the install has completed. i can add logic that polls for the process completion, or polls for the creation of the install log file that is written once the install completes, but i was hoping there was a more straightforward way to tell the install to run without user interaction but block until it has completed.

is there? if not, any other suggestions for how to perform a silent install and effectively block until it has completed?

thanks.

If this is for windows only, you can at least start it with "cmd /c setup.exe -i ....."
