Description Alexander Batishchev 2014-09-27 01:43:26 UTC
I started applying a recently downloaded update (3.6.3) while another setup was running. I got an error message box:
msiexec command failed
Starting installation
Installing Xamarin
>>>>> Begin msiexec log

<<<<< End msiexec log

I'd expect it to contain msiexec meaningful output.

The only thing that could be improved in this case is adding the msiexec error code associated with the msiexec failure. I've added this functionality in.
