tool to grab/log installation changes

Hi All

I'm pretty sure I read about a tool like this before on this website, but I can't find anything about it now. Basically I'm looking for a tool that I can use to tell me every file and registry entry that a particular installer is changing. I don't need to capture those changes into an MSI or a layer (like Altiris SVS) - i just need to capture them into a log file for analysis.

I know I can use regmon/filemon etc but I don't really want to sit here watching the screen, and potentially miss the registry key/file that I'm looking for. Can anybody advise me of any such tool ... if it exists !?

Thanks in advance

I used to use the Ziff-Davis/PC Magazine tool In Control but now use InstallWatch. Several posters here use PictureTaker but I'm not a fan.
