Printer Driver MSI Installer Logging Registration Process

The Black Ice Printer Driver MSI Installer includes detailed logging of the registration process, in order to facilitate System Administrators and System Integrators to determine the success or failure of the automated Printer Driver Registration, in large scale deployments. The improved registration logging in the Printer Driver MSI Installer creates a BiPDMSIRegistrationDataLog.txt named log file automatically in the User’s temp folder.

(for example: c:\Users\Administrator\temp\BiPDMSIRegistrationDataLog.txt)
