View Verbose MSI Log

This option is available on the right click explorer context menu for text files. This option displays a verbose log (possibly generated by the "Install - Verbose Logging" option) in a formatted way which is much easier to read than in a text editor.

This option requires the Windows Installer SDK file "WILOGUTL.EXE" to be in the MAKEMSI installation directory or pointed to by the "MAKEMSI_WILOGUTL_EXE" environment variable (installed by MAKEMSI if it finds the tool in the "program files" folder tree).

This option will create a "Verbose.TMP" directory with a number of text files containing "summary", "error" and "policy" information (these are not displayed, you may wish to examine these in a text editor). A HTML version of the log is also generated in this directory and it will be displayed in a browser.
