4.3.6 Windows Installer (MSI)

Windows® Installer can be configured to create logs about the installation process. These logs can be used to analyze installation problems. Ascolog Insight provides the MSI layout which describes the log format used by the Windows® Installer. Consult a documentation about your version of Microsoft Windows® to learn more.

A good place to look for Windows® Installer logs is the folder for temporary files of Microsoft Windows®.

Using Ascolog Insight you can analyze the log files created by the Windows® Installer. Be careful not to confuse these log files with the well-known installation packages. The installation packages are commonly called MSI files because of their file extension.
