Problem returning progress bar to Suite Project

So i am working with a Basic MSI project to enable IIS features and give a progress bar back to the user. The basic MSI when run on its own, works perfectly and as expected. The problem i am having is when i add this IIS.msi package to my Suite installer, while it executes the IIS.msi package, the progress bar DOESNT move at all. I get updated progress text as each action takes place but no movement on the Suite progress bar. What am i missing? I feel like my msi isnt returning the status back to the suite. Any help from someone out there?

[CODE]
#include "ifx.h"

export prototype NUMBER IISComponentInstallation(HWND);


function IISComponentInstallation(hMSI)
STRING svDismLocation;
STRING svDism;
STRING svDismHost;
STRING arrFeature(10);

NUMBER nCount;

INT iResult;

HWND hRecord;
begin
svDismLocation = WINDIR ^ "\\SysNative\\dism.exe";
svDism = "Dism.exe";
svDismHost = "DismHost.exe";
nCount = 0;

arrFeature(0) = "IIS-StaticContent";
arrFeature(1) = "IIS-ManagementConsole";
arrFeature(2) = "IIS-ManagementScriptingTools";
arrFeature(3) = "IIS-ISAPIFilter";
arrFeature(4) = "IIS-ISAPIExtensions";
arrFeature(5) = "IIS-RequestFiltering";
arrFeature(6) = "IIS-NetFxExtensibility";
arrFeature(7) = "IIS-ASP";
arrFeature(8) = "IIS-DefaultDocument";
arrFeature(9) = "IIS-ASPNET";


hRecord = MsiCreateRecord(3);

// Reset the progress bar to 10 total ticks.
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 1, 0);
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 2, 10); // Total number of ticks the progress bar will contain
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 3, 0);
iResult = MsiProcessMessage(hMSI, INSTALLMESSAGE_PROGRESS, hRecord);
if( iResult = IDCANCEL ) then
return ERROR_INSTALL_USEREXIT;
endif;

while( nCount <= 9 )
// Send one progress tick.
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 1, 2);
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 2, 1);
MsiRecordSetInteger(hRecord, 3, 0);
iResult = MsiProcessMessage(hMSI, INSTALLMESSAGE_PROGRESS, hRecord);
if( iResult = IDCANCEL ) then
return ERROR_INSTALL_USEREXIT;
endif;


MsiRecordSetString(hRecord, 1, "callAddProgressInfo");
MsiRecordSetString(hRecord, 2, "Configuring " + arrFeature(nCount));
MsiRecordSetString(hRecord, 3, "Incrementing tick [1] of [2]");
iResult = MsiProcessMessage(hMSI, INSTALLMESSAGE_ACTIONSTART, hRecord);
if( iResult = IDCANCEL ) then
return ERROR_INSTALL_USEREXIT;
endif;

LaunchApplication( svDismLocation, "/Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:" + arrFeature(nCount) + "", "", SW_NORMAL, 30000, LAAW_OPTION_WAIT );

while( IsAppRunning( svDism ) || IsAppRunning( svDismHost ) )
Delay( 1 );
endwhile;

nCount = nCount + 1;
endwhile;

MsiCloseHandle(hRecord);
return ERROR_SUCCESS;
end;

Re: Problem returning progress bar to Suite Project

Which property do you have associated with the progress bar in your suite? You will get different behavior depending on whether it reads ISInstallProgress or ISParcelProgress.

Currently ISParcelProgress, but i have tried both with the same results.
