I am using Windows Installer 2.0, and Wise Package Studio 5.6
I deploy the MSI using active directory without a prevision to change the properties or any install parameters to the MSI during installation.

Now, I need to create a log file while installing the MSI.

I am aware of the command line option in which I can specify the location for the log file.
Ex: msiexec /i "abc.msi" /l*v C:\test.log /qb-!

But as i can't use any parameters for the installation this is of no use.

Now I would like to know, is there any other method in which we can generate a msi installation log file in a specified location.

Thanks in advance.
