>From a custom action? Though not from WiX, I hope it is OK to link to good
content: Writing to the Log File from a Custom Action
is from Flexera (makers of Installshield), but it covers logging from
different types of custom actions in general as well as their proprietary

There may be better ways to do this from managed code that I haven't used
(I stay away from managed code CAs).

Come to think of it, aren't there built-in constructs in the WiX custom
action templates for this (logging)? I am on Linux right now and can't
test. I will have a look later. Or just install the visual studio
integration(s) and create a new test project yourself?

Studio Extension according to your Visual Studio version - see a bit down
the page).
