Here are where the log files are when an installation is done.

If the information you are looking for is anywhere, it's there.

Office Setup automatically creates log files in your \Temp folder. The log files have names that are similar to the following:
Log file for      Log file name
Setup.exe      Microsoft Office Setup(####).txt
Windows Installer (System Files Update)      Microsoft Office Setup(####)_Task(0001).txt
Windows Installer (Office installation)      Microsoft Office Setup(####)_Task(0002).txt
The #### characters in the log file names are numbers that start with 0001. They increment by one each time that you run Setup. Therefore, the log file that has the highest number is the log file for the most recent time that you ran Setup.
Who has admin rights or knows admin password  to install software?
You can narrow the install time through appwiz.cpl and the installed software info.
