 Probably the ZereneStacker folder will contain several log files.  To identify the proper one, consider the circumstances:  If you received a popup diagnostic that said "Uh-oh -- something went wrong and caused an internal error", then the file is named something like ErrorLog<timestamp>.txt or AutoErrorLog<timestamp>.txt, where <timestamp> is a string of digits that indicate date & time.  For example the file may be named ErrorLog20110508090456.txt, for a problem that occurred on 2011 May 8 at 09:04:56 am.  If you did not receive such a popup, then the log file is LastNormalLog.txt.  Probably the ZereneStacker folder will contain several log files.  To identify the proper one, consider the circumstances:  If you received a popup diagnostic that said "Uh-oh -- something went wrong and caused an internal error", then the file is named something like ErrorLog<timestamp>.txt or AutoErrorLog<timestamp>.txt, where <timestamp> is a string of digits that indicate date & time.  For example the file may be named ErrorLog20110508090456.txt, for a problem that occurred on 2011 May 8 at 09:04:56 am.  If you did not receive such a popup, then the log file is LastNormalLog.txt.
