My MIKE installation example runs from 0 - 100% in an instance and does not produce a log-file. Why?

To produce a log-file you need to have write access to the folder with the example. Otherwise it is not possible to execute the example model setups directly from the Program Files (x86)/DHI folder.
You can install MIKE Zero examples that come with the installation in another folder by using the 'Install Examples...' button that is placed to the left in the Start Page of the MIKE Zero shell.
