Helpful tip for dealing with HPC Pack setup failures

I once ran into an issue while installing the HPC Pack on a machine and I was wondering where to go to find more information about the setup failure preferably a log of some sort to see the reason for the failure. Here is a tip that helped.

The HPC Pack setup writes two logs to the installer’s %temp%\HPCSetupLogs directory: one for the MSI related installs and one for the setup program itself. If you run into errors while installing, more information would be present in setup-<date>-<time>.txt log.

Simply navigate to your %temp% folder and look for the HPCSetupLogs directory and you can see a logged output of the setup.

Hope someone finds this helpful someday.
