How to check my computer's progress log?

Specs: Windows XP Professional
Hey, I'm having a bit of trouble with the installation of the VGA/S3G UniChrome Family Win2K/XP/Server2003 Display Driver video card driver for my computer. The dowload package was in .EXE form. First off, whenever I try to install it a message pops up saying:

Setup was unable to complete the installation. Check the progress log in your Windows directory for more details.

And the file listed after that was:

I assumed this was the file to look for the progress, but I looked for it in My Computer and the file was no where to be found!

PLEASE help me find this progress log and ANY FURTHER INFO on how to install this driver!

did you do a search of the entire drive for *.log and see what came up?
I would suggest you go to the web site of the card and see if they don't have techsupport/online forum to get help on this very specific issue.

look for hidden files and folders in advanced search.


I want to go like my grandfather did. Peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming at the top of my lungs like the passengers in his car.
