hi all, i need information again :-)

if i use a template to create my package, is there a way to create a installation log file from inside the msi itself? not via the command line as in /l*v c:\some_dir\some_file.log

i would like this option to be enabled inside the msi because in my distribution tool i have to manually set the logging option for each individual package, which is becoming a pain.

so if i can enable it into the msi, i won't need to do this step anymore.

thanks all!

Why don't you enable windows installer logging within the operating system or via group policy. This will create log files in your %TEMP% directory everytime a windows installer package is accessed. The files will look similar to MSI*****.log

The reg key to enable it is

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]
Logging=voicewarmup (string)
