This file did not exist. Probably because the log directory did not
exist at all.

I did as Larry suggested and created 

rails_apps\typo-2.6.0\log\development.log and

This solved my problems. I have the scgi.log now as well, but it does
not contain any error. ;-)

So it looks like ..\log\development.log should be part of the
installation. At least the log directory. Maybe this this would be
sufficient, but I did not try it.

Ah, OK.
