Never had to do this before, but I need to write information to the MSI log file during the installaiton process. It there a Custom Action that can be used or is there another way to do this?

This is for a vbscript CA

'// function call: msiLog "my message to the MSI log-file"
Function msiLog(Message)
Const msiMessageTypeInfo = &H04000000

Dim Record : Set Record = Nothing
Set Record = Session.Installer.CreateRecord(1)
Record.StringData(1) = Message

Session.Message msiMessageTypeInfo, Record
Set Record = Nothing
End Function

Other constants to use in place of msiMessageTypeInfo, if required:
Const msiMessageTypeFatalExit = &H00000000
Const msiMessageTypeError = &H01000000
Const msiMessageTypeWarning = &H02000000
Const msiMessageTypeUser = &H03000000
