You need to put whatever you're trying to test into a new test
function.  As-is, it's not clear what you're testing and we need to
keep the tests logically separate.  Test both a success and a failure
case, plus all the in between cases.

Why does the install fail if we run the InstallUISequence action?.
Also, InstallExecuteSequence runs no matter what so this comment would
need to be fixed.
