How do I generate log files of the 3DxWare installer?

3DxWare 10.6.7 and later

With 3DxWare 10.6.7 log files of the installation are generated by default. They can be found in your %TEMP% folder. (Usually C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Temp.)

3DxWare 10.0.18 and later

  1. Open a command line prompt.
  2. Change to the folder where the 3DxWare is saved.
  3. Execute the command:
    3DxWare64_v10-x-y_rzzzz  /c:"3DxWare64 /a /z'/logpath=c:\temp'"

    where 3DxWare64_v10-x-y_rzzzz is the 3DxWare redistributable package (for example: 3Dxware64_v10-0-22_r1746)
    and c:\temp is the folder wher the MSI logs will be created.

    For the 32bit package adapt the command accordingly:

    3DxWare32_v10-x-y_rzzzz  /c:"3DxWare32 /a /z'/logpath=c:\temp'"

    where 3DxWare32_v10-x-y_rzzzz is the 3DxWare redistributable package (for example: 3Dxware32_v10-0-22_r1746)

How to generate MSI log files when changing a current installation

In order to generate MSI log files when changing (repairing/removing/updating) a current installation, the below procedure can be followed:

  1. Open the Registry Editor and open the key:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{BAFCA6AC-8B37-405B-B57E-C1D45DE70ACC}
  2. Copy the contents of the value “ModifyPath” to a command-line prompt.
  3. Append a space and the following text string to the command line:
    -z"/logpath=c:\temp"

    where c:\temp is the folder where the MSI logs will be created.
    Do not use a folder path with spaces.

  4. Execute the command: the normal updated/repair/remove dialogue will appear.
  5. Select the desired option and let the installer complete the change.
