as a start command i use bundle.exe /l test.txt. in my good bundle I get a correct log file. In my not working bundle the same option has no effect and I get back to the command prompt without any error.
I followed your advice and started with a simple bundle adding step by step my code. Thanks to you i found my problem. I define variables to set properties from the command line to configure my msi package. I defined my variable like this:
<Variable Name="DBPORT" bal:Overridable="yes" Type="numeric" Value="0"/>
In my original code the value attribute of the variable was an empty string ("") and that lead to the problem. Interesting effect.
Thanks a lot,

to be able to help you some details would be nice.
What is the exact command line command you are using to start the bundle?
Have you tried with a new very simple bundle to get logs and then add the
VC++-Runtime and the MSI one by one?

i am faced with a problem while authoring a wix bundle and hope you can
help me. I created to nearly identical bundles to distribute the visual c++
redistributables. The vc++-Runtine is bundled ogether with an msi package
that holds my software which should also be installed. One of my bundles
works as expected but the other did not start. I cannot see any diference
between the bundles. When I try to get a log of the bad bundle it does not
create a log file. There's no og file in my temp directory nor in the place
where I specified it with the /L option. So I think that the problem
happens at an very early stage. I tried the installation with and without
elevated previleges with no effect. Also the Windows 7 event log shows no
entry. Do you have an idea where the problem may be? My System: Windows 7,
vs2017, wix V3.11.
Thanks a lot for helping me,
