View Full Version : How to generate log files during install

11-22-2005, 06:44 AM

I am creating a install package using installshield 11 professional. I want that whenever the user runs the setup.exe of this install there should be some kind of logging that should happen. How do can i set this log path and file name while developing the install so that when the setup.exe is run it creates the install log at some folder.

There is a option when i go to the top menu build->settings->MSI Log file. i specify the path there but whenever i run the install the log file is not created there.

Any pointers how to solve this problem.

Thanks and regards

In the Releases view for your MSI project, you can select your release icon and use the MSI Command Line setting with a switch such as /L*v %TEMP%\everything.log.

(As an aside, in the future you might post questions related to the Professional edition here: http://community.macrovision.com/forumdisplay.php?f=161.)
