1. Go to this place: `%PROGRAMDATA%\SAP\Cof`.

2. Open the `Log.config` file using a text editor.

3. Find the following line in `Log.config` file:
     <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="${TEMP}\Sap\Cof\%property{Prefix}Trace_%processid.glf" />

4. Replace the `${TEMP}\Sap\Cof ` part of the line with the path you want to save the log. Note: `${TEMP}\Sap\Cof ` is the default path.

   For example, to save the log to the path `C:\Users\I\Documents`, the line should look like this after changing:

   <file type="log4net.Util.PatternString" value="C:\Users\I\Documents\%property{Prefix}Trace_%processid.glf" />

5. Save changes and replace the original `Log.config` file.
