Does anybody know how to debug an Universal Installer program?

I am currently evaluate the InstallShield X and have no idea of how to debug the program. I am trying the MessageBox and System.out.println, but nothing works.

Besides, I am pretty new to the Universal Installer. Is there any tutorials available apart from the ones in Installshield X.

Although I haven't tried this, I imagine you could use a debugger to hook into the installer code and set breakpoints, etc... Something like jswat or intellij would do the trick.

You can run the installer in debug mode. See this article: Tips & Tricks/Running the Installer in Debug Mode (http://www.installshield.com/news/newsletter/0402-articles/bug.asp)
