Hi and welcome to Advanced Installer forums.
Thank you for your interest in Advanced Installer. I'm glad you like it.
There are more ways to create a log file from an EXE package installation as described below:
1. You can either select the "Enable verbose logging" option from the "Install Parameters" page which will automatically create the log file with a random name (e.g. MSI1234.LOG) under the %temp% folder.
2. You can go to "Builds" page and write the appropriate command line in the "MSI command line" field from the "Bootstrapper Options" section. In your case "/L*V <path_to_log>
" is the switch for logging verbose your installation. It's important to mention here that “msiexec.exe /i <path-to-msi>” is implied at the command line and therefore is no need to put that in the command line.
3. Send the "/L*V <path_to_log>
" command to the EXE file (i.e. MyPackage.exe /L*V "D:\myLogFile.txt"
4. If you install the package through the Auto Updater, you can write the log command line, in the "Command Line" field from the "Update Installer" tab of the "Updates Configuration" project.
5. Another option that works for all the cases, regardless the package type or the installation method, is to enable the logging in the registry as described in the "Automated logging with the Windows Installer Logging Policy" section from the "How do I create an installation log
You can find all the needed information in the "EXE setup file
