Install new event log

Can InstallShield Limited Edition create a custom event log as I can't create the log within the code. And if so, how? The code will most likely not be run with admin privileges.

Re: Install new event log

I am not aware of a built in way to do it inside the installer, but you could create a batch file or powershell script and set up a custom action to run it during the install that would create the necessary event log and event sources.



the following forum thread has an example of how to create them using powershell.
