More information

Office will create two log files during the installation process, one for Setup.exe and one for the Windows Installer. The log files will be created in your Temp folder and will have names similar to:
   Log file for        Log file name
   Setup.exe           Office 2000 <edition> Setup(####).txt
   Windows Installer   Office 2000 <edition> Setup(####)_MsiExec.txt
where <edition> is the edition of Office you are installing. The #### characters in the log file names will be numbers beginning with 0002, and will increment by 2 if you have run Setup multiple times. So the log file with the highest number would be the log file for the last time you ran Setup.

The errors listed will be in the log file for the Windows Installer.
