Where can I find installation log file after installing MicroStation?
The name of this file is called BentleyInstallationlLog.log.
This log file contains information about all the actions and analysis performed by the installation setup wizard. It also saves the installation commands used to install the application. In case of any error in the installation, it stores the error code. This file is common for all the Bentley products. Each time a Bentley application is installed, this log file is appended with the content of the application.
When you install the application, its installation log is created. This log is saved in a new folder created inside C:\Users\User.Name\AppData\Local\Temp. The name of the new folder is randomly generated, such as E32830B5-3516-489D-AE49-EB1BD8A10867. If you execute the installation multiple times, the latest log can be taken from the last modified/created folder.
Providing these logs to Bentley can be helpful to troubleshoot installation errors and issues.
