In the Windows installer and cross platform there is a build-in log file.
Is there something equivalent in InstallScript ?

There's no text log file, other than response files used to prepare for a silent installation. There is a binary installation log, though, which you can view on your development system using the InstallShield Log File Viewer...

Hi Robert,

Can you elaborate on the binary installation log, where can I find it, and is it created always, or do I have to activate it in a special way..

For InstallScript, the .ilg files are automatically created in DISK1TARGET, a subdirectory of the hidden <PROGRAMFILES>\InstallShield Installation Information directory...

But this refer to the build process, not the run time installation.

Is there a log file for the installation process ?

There's a build log created in the project folder at build time, but I believe the .ilg file is created at run time...
