After the upgrade process is completed, a dialog box is displayed with the total count of successful files over total number of files confirming the completion of upgrade. The status messages are also saved as a log file, UpgraderLog.txt, to the destination folder. 

(For some reason, if the files fail the automatic upgrade process, the users can check the log file, and manually open the files and save them to the current version after resolving the conflicts/errors using the Revit user interface.)
