There is a simple way to generate a InstallShield log file, where you will be able to view exactly what InstallShield is doing. Advantage of this log file is that you are able to see where all the files are being extracted to and which switches are being used on each individual files. You simply use the /debuglog parameter from a command prompt after the InstallShield executable.


[crayon attributes]
setup.exe /debuglog


Using this switch will generate a “InstallShield.log” file in the same directing as the InstallShield executable that was executed.
