I believe /l*v is only for vervose log's that is msi's and not for exe's

/l is regular log for exe's

Type Msiexec /? in Start-->Run and search for Logging Options. /l if for generating standard log , * is for Log all information except Verbose and V for Verbose log.

hope this Helps!

That is really dependant on the software you are looking to install.  Each vendor decides what their parameters do.  Is there a specific piece of software you are looking at?
