How can I generate a log file for the DevPartner 7.x installer?
If you are not familiar with modifying the windows registry, USE EXTREME CAUTION, and consult the relevent MSDN documentation before modifying any registry keys
Create a new registry key:
Now, right-click on the registry key and create a new string value named "logging" (New->String Value)
Right-click on the new string value, and select "Modify". Set the value to "voicewarmup" to enable verbose logging,
Now, right-click on the registry key again and create a new DWORD named "Debug" (New->DWORD Value)
Right-click on the new string value, and select "Modify" again. Set the value to "0x7"
It should appear as follows:
Name Type Value
Logging REG_SZ voicewarmup
Debug REG_DWORD 0x7
the installer creates a log file in %temp% with the random name: MSI*.LOG
Make sure you rename or delete this key when you are finished with the installation. Otherwise, MSI will generate a new, large log file any time you install software, slowing performance and consuming disk space.
