I just tried to install SharePoint Server 2010.
The installation finally failed after applying all the updates, stating that installing SharePoint Server 2010 could not be completed due to some Office prerequisite not working alright.
The conclusion sentence proposed me to read the installation log files to get further details on the problem.
The only other thing available from the installation window there was the [OK] button - nothing more.
How am I supposed to read installation log files if there is not even a link available pointing me to those log files?
I'm currently performing a search operation on the whole C:\ drive to find the folder where the setup log files might reside.
Perhaps someone can tell me (and others if they are facing the same problem at installation) where the SharePoint Server 2010 installer puts these log files?
PS: I strongly suggest to add a Hyperlink control to the error message, pointing to the installation log files so that the user can quickly put his hands on finding a solution to the problem.
(A problem, I should add, that I believe could have been known to the installation script *before* it started wasting time on trying to install SharePoint Server 2010.)
