Is it possible to get a log of what windows repair has changed or repaired after running the program?
If not can it be added to program?

The set file and reg permissions repairs use subinacl.exe

This does support a log file, but with over 1 million reg keys in the registry and normally over 100,000+ files on a system having a log file I felt would be a bad idea as it would be HUGE and slow things down.

The other repairs are just registering files and other things.

A ton of commands are just done through the windows command window. So not a lot of log options. :wink:
commands like regsvr32.exe and sc.exe (for services)
