Hey all

My question is as following
Is there a way to know which file, system files and/or registry entries will be installed or modified before installing the actual software.

perhaps a way to extract this info from an exe software package?

in linux this is realy common and streight forward but im not sure how can i get this info in windows.

Thanks in Advance.

The only way I can think of to do this would be to install the software on a Virtual Machine and monitor the installation with a package such as Total Uninstall.

Thank you for the quick replay.
and yes this is 1 option i all ready thought of. but thats a really the long complicated way to do it. i thought there is a simple way to generate a log out of an exe or something.

Thanks alot anyway ;)
