Turn on logging for MSI installs

If you ever install from MSI's (which I'm sure you do) it can be handy to turn on logging so you can see the outcome - particularly handy if the install is failing.

Use the following code after your package.MSI and then a log file will be generated at the location you choose:

msiexec /i Packagename.msi /l*v c:\logname.log
