It is usually dependant on the vendor that packaged the exe so you will likely need to start by reviewing thier installation docs.

As jmaclaurin said it depends on vendor who packaged, but normally it should be /verbose "path of log file"

1)You could try with setup.exe /? to see if it supports any log file.
2)If the exe has msi with in it then try to set the registry key and see the log file in %temp%
3) For installshield created exe try with setup.exe /debuglog”C:\SetupLogFile.txt”

As already mentioned it depends on the vendor,how to support the log file creation.
