I'am currently running a windows server 2012 version and I don't have the "C:\Program files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\LOGS". Instead in the "14" directory I only have "CONFIG" and "TEMPLATE" directories. I would like to see the .log file to see the error that matching with the correlation ID I got.

    The log files should be present in 15/LOGS. Feb 4, 2015 at 11:57

  • Or , as Nadeem says, if this is a SharePoint 2013 environment, first look in the 15 folder Feb 4, 2015 at 11:59
