turn off timestamps

For msi log files, is there a way to turn off time stamps?

MSI (s) (F4:2C) [18:26:14:434]: Note: 1: 2318 2:

the bolded items every line will be different.

If this one thing is turned off then standard diffing tools like KDiff can pinpoint the differences.

There is just too much NOISE in a msi log file.

use notepad++ and regular expressions to strip out the time stamps and such. Beyond Compare diffing tool has an excellent filter tool that allows you to filter stuff like this too.
I do not know of a way to have logging without the time stamps.
