A report would be based on stale information reported by the client not active information on realtime monitoring.  

You could open up the task manager on the local system and see if the MSIexec components are running and if the other install files are currenlty running.  

In the following locations are the pcanywhere solution install logs and you could review these for updates as the install is running but it isn't a report.

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Symantec\pcASolutionLog\
Vista/Windows 7/2008: C:\ProgramData\Symantec\pcASolutionLog\

Agree with ICHCB. Not of any report avaialble which can show you the realtime installation status.

You can find it from task manager or from pcanywhere logs.
