Warning Says "Error encountered while generating reports ,check Tuning log"

Where can I check the tuning log(path)?

What user account are you using to run the DTA and what permissions does it have in the database engine?  
Make sure that the login has all of the needed rights:

If this is the first run of the DTA, you have to use a sysadmin user to launch it.  After the first run, a login can tune the PDS of any database it has db_owner rights to.

Looks like there may be some setup table issues.  I found this:
