Does anyone know if there is a way to log GPO msi installs so that it is easy to see what app has been deployed to each pc?

Hi Sean,

Hope this helps.

To enable verbose logging
1.Log onto the client computer as the administrator and run Regedit.
2.Locate the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon.
3.Right click Winlogon, select New, and then click DWORD Value.
4.Enter the following name for the DWORD Value: UserEnvDebugLevel.
5.Enter 30002 as the hexadecimal value. This writes the userenv into userenv.log, located in the \%windir%\debug directory.
6.Run "gpupdate /force" to ensure a full listing of total Group Policy processing.

Close...that key is the one for Group Policy logging. It won't trigger the logging of MSI installs. For that, you need this:REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer]
"Logging"="voicewarmup"
There is no need to restart the machine. Logs get written to %SystemRoot%\TEMP, prefixed with 'MSI' and a '.LOG' extension. This is an "all or nothing" policy and will thus record all MSI activity, including advertisements, so remember to disable logging when you're done.

BTW, a simple search here on AppDeploy would have turned up this information in short order, as would using a little-known search engine called Google.
