Is there any way to generate a log file for the uninstall process?

I want to get a generate a log when I do an uninstall via the control panel. Is there a way?

basically taking the uninstall-string from the Uninstall-registry-section and appending an /qb for basic interface should do the same as the controlpanel uninstall does.

MsiExec.exe /X{yourproductguidhere} /qb /l* "c:\debug.log"

If you set the value "VerboseLogFileName" under the registry key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\InstallShield\ISWI\3.0\SetupExeLog

to e.g. "C:\VerboseLog.log", all installations and uninstallations will be logged there, regardless of how they were started.

HTH.
