Hello!

What about making an option in the installer: create install/uninstall log file? The log would include the installed codecs/filters and perhaps more stuff. It would be useful for "debugging" problems and to help users with problems.

What do you think?

Hi maska, out of the box NSIS doesn't have the logging feature enabled but if I recompile NSIS itself then I can enable it, I will look into it some time (No space for VS right now).

No, the logging feature was already there but not actually implimenteed unless you recompiled NSIS yourself, it looks like they've added a logging version already compiled though

Test builds maybe but not finals, I have to protect a certain amount of the installer and I don't think that the logging will work for my uninstaller
