Msi error 1622 during an installation and uninstallation of an msi .

Cause : Error in writing a log file 

Example :  This Error may occur if we give a folder which is not present during installation or uninstallation

Msiexec /i Xtrader.msi /l*v c:\temp\install\ins.log

If you don't have a folder install under c:\temp the msiexec.exe may throw an error 1622

In order to overcome this issue create a folder before installation or uninstallation or use the existing folder say c:\temp .
