Using Logs for Troubleshooting Product Installation

by Technical Evangelist on ‎10-03-2019 06:01 AM (93 Views)

When a produdc fails to install, there are a few options to get more information and act upon it:


  • Create a Log file for the installation -- This can be requested by using a registry key or by specifying command-line parameters.
  • Examine (and possibly Export) the Application Event Log -- This gives you access to OS events generated during installation and configuration of a product.

You can generate MSI (Windows Installer) and Application Event Logs.


* Turning on MSI Logging from the registry, rather than from the command line, is recommended.
