Feeding Windows Exit Code to Deployment Server/Solution

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hey Everyone,

I am trying to generate a script that can be run on a DS that can give user's a quick way to verify a registry setting. 

Setx _scforce /k "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\scforceoption" /m
IF "%_scforce% " == "0" (
exit 10001
) ELSE (
IF "%_scforce% " == "1" (
exit 10002
))

Has anyone had any luck with this?  I can set the variable, but I am having a difficult time sending that variable back to Windows and to the DS.

Got it working! 

For future reference, here is an example of a script we created.

@echo off
for /f "tokens=*" %%a in ('"REG QUERY HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v scforceoption"') do set REGVAR=%%a
set REGVAR=%REGVAR:~-1%
IF %REGVAR% == 0 GOTO SCOFF
IF %REGVAR% == 1 GOTO SCON
GOTO EXIT
:SCOFF
exit 10001
GOTO EXIT
:SCON
exit 10002
GOTO EXIT
:EXIT
exit 10003
