How to log MSI installations

Having msi installation problems and you need to log the MSI's actions.... Here is the command: msiexec /i "installer.msi" /lvx "installer.log" I have a bat file handy with the following command in it : msiexec /i %1 /lvx "%~1.log" I can then drag and drop an MSI file on the bat file to quickly log its actions to a file.

I remember I had problem like you write here. It was a long time ago. This command is very useful! Thank you! Two weeks ago some of my programs worked slow, and one man advised me to install one file And after I did it problem really solved!
