not sure if its the way its been copied into your question, but it looks like your quotes are backwards on the logging.

Why double back slashes???

I would guess the logging is not happening because you are putting the log file into %temp%\c. Do you have a C folder in the Temp dir???

If the log isn't appearing during a command line installation, then you almost certainly have an issue with your command string. If however it's failing during installtion using a deployment system, e.g. SCCM, then you should know that these systems almost always use the local System account which means that %TEMP% effectively points to nowhere. Use %SystemRoot%\TEMP instead.

You are using wrong syntax:

Just to work on that ans you should have log created for msu.

wusa.exe msufile(complete path) /quiet /norestart /log c:\temp.. (if there is some space in location use quotes)
Windows6.xxxxxxx86.msu //quiet //norestart /log "%temp%\c\hotfix.log" - See more at: http://www.itninja.com/question/help-needed-on-hot-fix#sthash.EdZIH5eR.dpuf

  • yes it creates a log file. but its blank log file......
    • Not sure why its like that . Do check if there is some issue with that msu . Can you let us know the exact name .
      • Windows6.1-KB2667241-v3-x86.msu AND Windows6.1-KB2667241-v3-x64.msu. The command supports for logging but creates log which is not in english launguage.
