How to sequence a custom action to execute only when installation is interrupted or completed with error?

Is there any windows installer property which returns current installation status (failed/succeed)?

I have sequenced a custom action for rollback, but in this specific case rollback does not happen.

You could bind the action to the button press to close the installer in the setupCompleteError dialog and SetupInterupted. Probably not the most graceful way to trigger it but it should accomplish what you want.

Keep in mind I have not tested that myself but have bound custom actions to the completion step in SetupCompleteSuccess before.
