comment After MSI install, \Windows\Installer DB file name changes
I should add that there is no record whatsoever of the new file name in the setup log file I am producing via the /l*vx param to msiexec.exe.

comment rpm -ql package_name equivalent for Windows MSI?
@Alexey, I agree that MSI is a book, but is is not an open book. ;) I find myself frequently looking for utilities, or writing my own to better explore and/or work with its contents. With rpm, one simply has to run "rpm ...." to discover everything about a package. I am going to write some basic MSI query tools very soon as a result of the discussions here.

comment rpm -ql package_name equivalent for Windows MSI?
I want to understand all files completely that the MSI package deposited onto my system when it was initially installed.

comment rpm -ql package_name equivalent for Windows MSI?
I apologize for the lack of detail in my question. I just want a list of the files and their location on disk (full paths) after the msi package has been installed. I need to query the system on which the msi was installed for this list.

msiexec.exe /a - msiexec help says that installs the product on a network share. That's not what I am looking to do.

comment unattend.xml file and the running of SetupComplete.cmd
New info. I was looking in the wrong location for the setupact.log. I looked in C:\Windows\Panther\UnattendGC\setupact.log, and the reference to running SetupComplete.cmd was there. It was not indicated in the C:\Windows\setupact.log file as I originally expected.

comment unattend.xml file and the running of SetupComplete.cmd
Do you know of efficient ways to troubleshoot this lack of running SetupComplete.cmd? The file is clearly there, no typos, yet the action in the cmd file is not performed. Is there a more verbose logging option I can set in Windows Setup (via the unattend file passed to sysprep, perhaps?) that would let me see why this SetupComplete.cmd file is not run as the normal course of Windows Setup?

comment unattend.xml file and the running of SetupComplete.cmd
I suppose my question could be more succinctly put as, "If there is not a pass"specilaize" setting, will SetupComplete.cmd be run?

comment Windows Search service continually being set to Disabled startup mode
The machine is also running SQL Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with all the trimmings installed (Analysis Services, RS, etc.) Everything. If that helps.

comment Windows Search service continually being set to Disabled startup mode
Evan, Sorry for not being specific. The machine is not in an AD domain. It's just a dev system in Workgroup "WORKGROUP". I ran rsop.msc and the Windows Search service's "Security Policy Setting" tab's "Define this policy setting" checkbox is greyed out. I assume because we are not in a domain? I don't know for sure.
