Setup.log is the default name for the silent installation log file and its default location is the same folder where Setup.ins is located. You can specify a different name and location for Setup.log using the -f2 switch with Setup.exe.

The Setup.log file has 3 sections:

[InstallShield Silent]

Identifies the version of InstallShield Silent used in the silent installation. It also identifies the file as a log file.

[Application]

Identifies the installed application's name and version, and the company name.

[ResponseResult]

Contains the result code indicating whether or not the silent installation succeeded. An integer value is assigned to the ResultCode keyname in the [ResponseResult] section. InstallShield places one of the following return values after the ResultCode keyname:

0 Success

-2 Invalid mode

-3 Required data not found in the Setup.iss file
