One of my users has Outlook unable to start with "Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook Window" and I've already ruled out existing add-ins. (This is just for background information and is not a part of the question proper.)
When it's starting, a Windows Installer window appears for a few seconds before the error, and Application Event Log has an entry that suggests that an Active Setup session fails:
(excerpt; translated, so may not exactly correspond to what an English Windows would write):
Log name: Application Source: MsiInstaller Event Code: 1033 Description: Windows Installer has finished installing the product. Product name: Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010. Version: 14.0.4763.1000. Language: 0. Vendor: Microsoft Corporation. Installation finished with status: 1635.
So, the question is:
How do I get the
msiexec log for this installation to find out what specifically is wrong?
When I run a regular installation, I can just supply the
/log <file> parameter. But this time, it's not a normal package installation, and it runs automagically so I can't change the command line.
