You should not interpret the return code.  0 is success all other
values indicate a failure.  2 is usually used for unxpected errors and
1 for things like a BAD signature.  The proper way to identify an
error is by interpreting the output of --status-fd.

See also for a nice COM+ component which can be used
directly from VBscript and friends.
