Exporting Application Log

With Remote Installer, you can easily export the application log to the CSV file format for future analysis or processing by an automated tool. To export the logged events, click the Export button from the Application Log view toolbar. You are proposed to choose between exporting the selected events and all events. You can also press the Export button from the Organize Ribbon group on the Program page when the Application Log view is in focus. It is also possible to use the pop-up menu of the Application Log view to export logged events. The Export Log Wizard will appear on the screen Pic 1.

The Export Log Wizard welcome page

Pic 1. The Export Log Wizard welcome page

The first page of the Export Log Wizard is the welcome page used to introduce you to the feature the wizard is supposed to help you with. After reading the welcome information press Next to continue with export.

On the next page of the Export Log Wizard, you are offered to choose a file you are going to save the application log data to and the CSV format options. The file path should be provided to the Export To field Pic 2. You can choose the encoding to be used for saving the data as well as, the field delimiter and the text qualifier. While performing exporting, you may also define if you would like the column header to be present in the resulting file, which would make it easier for you to identify each column – this feature option can be enabled using the Include column header option.
