Hi ...

I am just curious. Is the 'Install.log' file a unique file that every installed program has for itself or is there also a global 'Install.log'. Hope someone can advise. Thanks.

regards

It really depends on the platform you're dealing with, to be honest. For example, there are utilities in Linux which can be used to track changes in all files since the last time the log was interrogated.

As for Windows, they generally tend to be for individual programs. The one difference is for OS updates, where a record of all the Windows updates is kept here:

%windir%\Windowsupdate.log
