Troubleshooting

On the off chance the installation is not successful, the Windows Installer component has an excellent logging mechanism.

So we can help you, we would require a verbose log to be created by the installer, this can be achieved with the following command;

msiexec /i SimplyMigrate-x64-v1.2.3.4567.msi /L*vx log.txt

Please use the same steps as when the installer failed and this will be logged to the log.txt file. This is the file we would require for support purposes.
