 Description  « Hide

Build: GFv3 b70 / SDK b26
OS: Windows 2008

The -a, -s, -n options are working but the -l option is not. The log files are
placed in %TEMP% directory even if "-l C:\mylog" directory is specified.

(Related to issue 8399. File as a separate issue per developer's request and
will close 8399.)

I couldn't reproduce this on B71. I ran the installer with -l option pointing to
an existing directory like this ".\latest-web-windows.exe -l c:\mylog" and I
could see the log files.

Volume in drive C has no label.
Volume Serial Number is 290E-14EF

Directory of C:\mylog

11/05/2009 12:39 PM <DIR> .

Please pass on the command line used.

I used the command:

<installer> -a C:\mystatefile -s -l C:\mylog


uninstall.exe -l C:\mylog

This is an open installer bug, I just confirmed it. We will have to document
this given that OI can't be fixed now. Please document the following (RN)

"Option -l to relocate installer log files will be ignored when used with
options -a and -s and the log files are created in the default location".

Added [UB] to summary to denote that the issue affects documentation that is not
bundled with the software.
