Troubleshoot software installation issue

Title: Troubleshoot software installation issue

Description:

I have installed thousands of softwares through group policy and manually and many a time I failed to install some of software due to some issue. We used to get various errors\warning in installation. some times it happens that we are not able to understand anything from error\warning.

To understand complex errors and error code we can enable Windows Installer logging.

Here are the steps for the same:

Open registry.

Create the following path and keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer
Reg_SZ: Logging

Value: voicewarmupx

Windows Installer logging should be used only for troubleshooting purposes and should not be left on because it will have adverse effects on system performance and disk space.
Each time you use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, a new Msi*.log file is created.

For more information about how to enable Windows Installer logging, see Microsoft Knowledge Base article 223300: How to enable Windows Installer logging, the article link is mentioned below.
