Hello, everone. I am new to regular and perl expressions and attempting to extract the Product Name, Product Version and Product Language from the following Message field:

Windows Installer installed the product. Product Name: Java 7 Update 71. Product Version: 7.0.710. Product Language: 1033. Installation success or error status: 0.

What would be the best way to extract so I can search by Product, Version or Language? Thanks.

Try to create a field extraction for your source type and use the following expression:

^Windows Installer.+\. Product Name: (?P<productName>.+)\. Product Version: (?P<productVersion>.+)\. Product Language: (?P<productLanguage>.+)\. Installation.+$

One thing I normally do, is to open the site http://regex101.com/ and try the expression there. It's very helpful to understand what you're selecting.
