ResolutionIn order to proceed with further troubleshooting, installation has to be repeated with the actions log enabled. This can be done in two ways:

msiexec.exe /I productXXXX.msi /l*v <log-file_name>
If it is not possible to use the option mentioned above, perform the following configuration in registry. Run regedit tool and add two entries to the node HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Installer:
Once this configuration is complete, all actions for MSI will be logged in the files which reside in %TEMP%\MSI*.log Do not forget to revert to these changes when troubleshooting is accomplished in order to avoid wasting disk space.
