Okay the help was my friend:

To create a debug log file, run the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation from the command line with /debuglog parameter. To generate a log file named InstallShield.log in the same directory as the Setup.exe file, pass just the command-line parameter. Note that this does not work if the Setup.exe file is in a read-only location. For example:

Setup.exe /debuglog

Please check in the Onlinhelp "Generating Package Log Files While Running an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Installation" and "Logging an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Installation to Troubleshoot Issues"
It is possible to set a directory and a file name:
-> Suite.exe /log:"C:\PathToLogFiles" /debuglog"C:\PathToLog\setupexe.log"

"Note that this works if the Setup.exe file is in a read-only Location"
