Citrix VDA silent installation question regarding logging

I created silent installation for CVDA:
VDAWorkstationSetup_7.6.300.exe" /installdir "c:\program files\citrix" /QUIET /components vda /exclude "Personal vDisk" /controllers "xxxx" /enable_hdx_ports /enable_remote_assistance /enable_real_time_transport /NOREBOOT /LOGPATH "C:\Windows\Logs\CVDA-7-6-3"

The only problem it is failing to create a log file. I had the same cmd with 7.6 and no issues.
Is anyone able to create logs for CVDA 7.6.3?
Thank you.

Probably something you have already looked at, but the documentation does say regarding the logpath qualifier

 The specified folder must already exist; the installer does not create it. 

Have you tried omitting the /logpath qualifier and seeing if a log file gets created somewhere in a subfolder of %Temp%\Citrix ?


  • Just create in the %temp% folder or %WinDir%\Temp folder, which is the same anyway, if your using SYSTEM account to install. There's really no reason to keep the log, unless your deployment craps out which shouldn't really be happening that much - if it is i think you have other problems to worry about. - rileyz 4 years ago
