Not using the binary, no.  You can run from source and do whatever you like
with the log information.

This is a problem with 1.0.3.  Please upgrade to 1.0.4, which should fix
this problem.

Not without running from source.

With the binary the log file is always stored in the Windows temp directory.
The only way to change where it is is to change the temp directory location.
Again, running from source you can do what you like.

Note the "please read this message carefully", the "please ensure that you
have the latest version", and the "1.0.4". :)
