📖HomeBack Sometimes, although rarely, ClearSCADA experience problems with the installation, upgrade or uninstalling. The process can be logged to a log file for analysis afterwards.
To log the installation, run the following command substituting the correct name for the MSI file and target log file:
msiexec /i "ClearSCADA.msi" /l*v Install.log
Then the normal dialogue will be displayed and you can choose the installation options as normal.
To log the uninstallation, use the following command, again substituting the correct name for the MSI file and target log file:
msiexec /x "ClearSCADA.msi" /l*v Uninstall.log
You will be prompted with a dialogue asking if you wish to uninstall the product, choosing the yes option will remove ClearSCADA from the system. When doing an upgrade, or modification, it's the same option (/i) as an install.
Note that to uninstall by this method you need the original install kit, using the "Add/Remove Programs" method will not allow you to log the process.
The "/l*v" option means to log everything, verbosely. This can mean that your installation log file may end up over 3MB (but will compress well with WinZip) and your de-installation log file over 1MB. You can filter what to log, however it makes more sense to log it all and then the relevant bits can be picked out rather than only logging some options and losing important information.
