Writing to MSI log from c# exe

I have a custom action (NEW EXE -> Path referencing a directory) calling a c# exe which does some system configurations. Is it possible for me to write to the msi log file from within this exe? If so, how can I do it?

Thanks & Regards,
Sooraj

Re: Writing to MSI log from c# exe

It's not possible as an EXE because it's running out of process and doesn't have access to the MSI handle.

Now if you want to google DTF managed custom actions you'll find information on how to do it as easy as

session.Log("hello world");
