looking to specify msi log file location


I would like to automatically log my installations, but need to supply a consistent location at which the end user could find the log if needed.

Since a variable like [INSTALLDIR] has not yet been resolved, what could I use specific to Windows Installer? (I've tried, for instance, /l*v "%TEMP%\Installation.log", but then couldn't find the log file.)

Thanks for any info...

I use syntax like

/l*v %TEMP%\Installation.log

(without quotes) all the time and it works for me. Try that. And then to look for the file, in a Start | Run... box enter %temp% to open the temp folder.
