How to Create Logs for MSI,EXE in Suite UI


I'm creating unified installer with 4 MSI files,3 Exe files and 1 Suite project exe files for our project.

I want to get separate logs in %TEMP% folder for all the packages(msi,exe & Suite exe) during installation.  

I tried to enable the Log option and pass the log command line but it is not working 

Kindly help me to get all the logs.

Unfortunately, just having the "Enable Logging Support" doesn't actually create the log. 

I have not tried to do this myself but, for the MSI's, what happens if you add something like to the Install "MSI Command Line"?

/L*v [PATH_TO_WHATEVER]installLog.log

Do the logs get created when you run the Suite with "setup.exe /debuglog"

A fail-safe option that I tend to do with a custom action is actually set the MSI logging option in the registry:


This will create an MSI***.log in %TEMP%%
