Where is the error log file for Lightroom?

After an import or a move of files on the hard drive sometimes Lightroom flashes that it wasn't able to process some photos or videos. As most people I don't go through all of the files right then and click the OK button. Where is the history of these errors for when I do have the time to look at them?

I thought it was a good question.  Where are the logs, can't imagine they don't exist.

I don't know specifically, but I assume somewhere in a temp folder.

This is not specific to Lightroom, but might put you on the right track:

There's also a  Log Collector tool (which I've never used):

Hope that helps,

There is no such log, unfortunately.
