Installation Logging

The installation log file is intended for debugging purposes and contains messages that may help resolve issues that arise during installation.

Debug Logging

The installer is capable of writing the same messages that go to the Main Installer Log using the Windows debug logging infrastructure. These messages may be viewed using a utility such as SysInternal’s DebugView application. To enable this logging, the installer must be run from the command line with the /debug switch.
