It's most likely that your log file has never been enabled. When you open your Advanced designer with your project just look at the main window, you have there an option towards the lower part of the screen which says "Installation log": you have to check "Generate installation log during installation". This way you'll have this log generated during install and you will be able to check it for errors.

Have you waited for the installer to finish? The log is not written to the disk until the installer has completely finished and you've closed it!

It can be wherever you want it to be: you only have to set the following variable $INSTALL_LOG_DESTINATION$ to $USER_INSTALL_DIR$ in the Pre-Install task for instance, thus the log will be created at the root of your application installation folder.

this is error ..since i have used Modify Text file:

i have not used installed file option

so what should i do now?
