    msiexec /i won't work



    I'm trying to create a log file by running my MSI file through MSIEXEC from
    the command line.

    msiexec /i "my msi file.msi" /La mylog.log

    I cannot get this to work. All I get is a flash of a dialog and then
    silence. I'm running ISWI 1.5 on Windows 2000

    Are you building a multi-lingual setup?

    Yes: the MSI package for a multilanguage setup has no dialog boxes; a user
    has to launch the Setup.exe, which optionally asks the user which language
    to use and then applies the appropriate language transform (MST) file to the
    MSI database.

    To create a log file, you might try a command line similar to this:

    msiexec /i Your.msi TRANSFORMS=1033.mst /L*v Your.log
