NSIS log file feature request
Ok, I will apologize up front for not reading every detail of the documentation, and searching every forum for an answer, but I have been beating my head flat trying to understand what is going wrong in my scripts.
Firstly, I am trying to launch a silent install of apache, firefox and perl within my install, and sadly, things have not been going well, since I can't figure out how to launch a system call with multiple parameters, which will wait before continuing. I know I need to do more research to figure this one out, but this is not my main gripe.
I decided to really figure out what is going on, I should invoke some logging so that I might have some glimmer of hope to debug some of my problems. I find the DumpLog function on the "UsefulScripts" page, which causes a compile error on GetTempFileName, which I work around by hard-coding, then promptly gives me an "error" messagebox on execution. Then I start digging and find I need to modify the source to turn debugging on. Argh.
At any rate, if I am incorrect in my assumption, please show me how to get some simple install debug file so I can figure out what I am doing wrong. If it is not as simple as that, please add this as a feature request. I should be able to flip a switch and pass in a filename somewhere (or have a default filename) to get debug info out of the execution of the install.
Thanks for the help, and kudos for having a great InstallShield replacement!
