why don't we always create and keep a log, at least during Beta?

I develop the MSI package, so I run into these mysterious "installation interrupted" problems quite frequently -- generally due to errors that never make it into the code that you wind up running.
There isn't any way I know to diagnose this sort of problem without more information. Fortunately, it is easy to get more information. From a command prompt, give the following command:
msiexec /i dbt-1006beta6.msi /L*v install.log
This will run an installation just as before, but will log some details to a file called install.log. If you send that file to me after you've clicked the "Finish" button, then I can generally figure out what's going on.

I just attempted to install the new Beta 6 and found I can't get installation method to work for me. To be honest the only Beta I have installed to date previously was Beta 1. With Beta 1 I was able to make the "Workstations that share an activation" method work. Now that I am trying to install in a new location with the new server image created with msiexec /a it starts the installation gets most of the way through and then fails with an installation interrupted error. I am not sure if I am doing something different, or if something has changed, or if I am just having a "stupid day" and am overlooking something. I have tried the instructions over and over again.
I have used the DNS name and IP number of the Server with no luck.
