clean_3 fails due to installation issue, MSI file shows some error..

MSI (s) (0C:FC) [04:23:16:671]: Running as a service.
MSI (s) (0C:FC) [04:23:16:671]: Hello, I'm your 32bit Elevated custom action server.
MSI (s) (0C:A8) [04:23:16:718]: Closing MSIHANDLE (46) of type 790536 for thread 3340
MSI (s) (0C:0C) [04:23:16:734]: Note: 1: 1723 2: getlogfile 3: MSIGetLogFileName 4: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_10\regutils.dll


SUGGESTED FIX The cause of the problem is that MSIGetLogFileName is no longer exported by RegUtils.dll. Previously (e.g. 6u4), LOGFILE was not being set by MSIGetLogFileName() because a deferred custom action cannot set an MSI property. The custom actions have been resolving to "[bin]\unpack200.exe" -r -v -l "" "[INSTALLDIR]\jre\lib\jsse.pack" "[INSTALLDIR]\jre\lib\jsse.jar" with the log output being lost. This change does not changed the output being lost. CR 6657295 will have to. My change is to get rid of the getlogfile custom action from the JDK install and the call to the non-existing, previously non-functioning, MSIGetLogFileName, which cause the Error 1723. CR 6647280 removed MSIGetLogFileName from RegUtils.dll because the deferred custom action cannot set an MSI property such as LOGFILE. CR 6657295 exists to fix logging of zipper.exe and unpack200.exe in the JDK install. webrev: http://sa.sfbay.sun.com/projects/deployment_data/6u10/6659450.0 testcase: http://oklahoma.east/deployment/www/tests/1.6.0_10/6659450/6659450.txt

EVALUATION My regutils.dll change for 6647280 broke the JDK install. The fix is to remove calls to getlogfile (that did not work anyway) from the jdk InstallExecuteSequence. 6657295 will fix the actual logging.
