    Well, as far as I know, there is no uninstall log... And indeed it does make sense, as uninstall it is supposed not to leave anything behind...

    Thank you for the confirmation of my observation.

    Well I'm afraid I disagree with the utility of such a feature.
    Uninstall log can be very useful when having some custom code for instance.
    ISMP 11.5 was able to do this and it proved to be useful.

    It's really a pity that the good ideas from ISMP were not incorporated into IA 2009.

    Thanks,

    Call me crazy, but IA is used to install notepad only...They could have merged the features from both worlds and make it a powerful install tool...Anyhow, I agreed with you that uninstallation log is very useful. You might have to write custom logger to do what you want.

    - AND -
    lax.stdout.redirect=

    lax.stderr.redirect=output.txt
    - AND -
