Logging Directories

The following definitions are from "MAKEMSI.MMH" and show configure where MAKEMSI places its files. You can also use these definitions if you wish to create your own files as part of the build.

;--- Set up some other logging directories (defaults/suggestions) -----------
#define? MAKEMSI_CA_DIR            <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR $$DEL:\>CustomActions      ;;Custom Action code
#define? MAKEMSI_NONCA_SCRIPT_DIR  <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR $$DEL:\>Scripts            ;;Scripts which are NOT Custom Action code
#define? MAKEMSI_VBSCA_DIR         <$MAKEMSI_CA_DIR $$DEL:\>VB                      ;;Custom Actions - VBSCRIPT based
#define? MAKEMSI_JSCA_DIR          <$MAKEMSI_CA_DIR $$DEL:\>JavaScript              ;;Custom Actions - JSCRIPT based
#define? MAKEMSI_DLLCA-C_DIR       <$MAKEMSI_CA_DIR $$DEL:\>C                       ;;Custom Actions - C/C++ based
#define? MAKEMSI_VBSCRIPT_DIR      <$MAKEMSI_NONCA_SCRIPT_DIR $$DEL:\>VB            ;;VBSCRIPT (not custom actions)
#define? MAKEMSI_JSCRIPT_DIR       <$MAKEMSI_NONCA_SCRIPT_DIR $$DEL:\>JavaScript    ;;JSCRIPT  (not custom actions)
#define? MAKEMSI_CABINET_DIR       <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR_RELATIVE $$DEL:\>CAB.MAKECAB ;;Use as short a name as possible to help overcome MS MAKECAB.EXE bugs
#define? MAKEMSI_CABINET_CACHE_DIR <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR_RELATIVE $$DEL:\>CAB.CACHE   ;;If you want "MakeCab" caching then where should the cache be located? (empty to completely disable)
#define? MAKEMSI_MSIVALIDATION_DIR <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR $$DEL:\>Validation         ;;Validation related files
#define? MAKEMSI_OTHER_DIR         <$MAKEMSI_OUT_LOG_DIR $$DEL:\>Other              ;;Sundry other files
