Does somebody has a quick solution, how I can find out the Installation Source of a Installer package?
So, i.e. the path, where the MSI File resides?

We want to write it into a XML file.

OK, the Log-File points at least to more variables, I can use.

Wondering, why it is not direct answer if it clearly says that the source path is in the property [SourcePath].

The SourcePath is not the property we need, as It may point to a temporary directory, where the MSI is eypanded. We needed the real source of the MSI file, which we found in SETUPEXEDIR
