White Paper: MSI (Windows Installer) Run-Time Logging and Debugging
How InstallShield Helps You with Windows Installer Run-Time Logging and Debugging
Because Windows Installer (MSI) installations do not contain an explicit script, the debugging techniques are different from those generally used with programming languages. Written by Robert Dickau, the techniques described in this white paper include investigating Windows Installer error codes, generating and interpreting Windows Installer log files, and using the InstallShield MSI Debugger. The white paper also discusses how InstallShield helps you with run-time logging and debugging.
