On a Windows Server 2012, I configured as a domain controller and installed SQL Server, then tried to install SharePoint, but I get a FileNotFoundException at the end of configuration:

enter image description here

Strange thing: The linked file does not contain the string "FileNotFoundException", nor does any of the many log files in the same folder (searched through Windows Explorer).

Where can I see the problem?
The log file is huge and seems to contains only INF lines.

Try deleting your Central Admin web app from IIS (after snapshotting your VM or backing it up from IIS using AppCmd - not that necessary though if it's a fresh install) and running the config wizard again.
