The dawn.log file doesn't necessarily record everything, it wasn't really designed to be the main form of logging.

Run the dawn.exe file in a dos prompt window (i.e. load a command prompt, then change into the directory which contains the dawn.exe file, then manually run it.)

This way when it exits, you will see any additional messages... I suspect it will tell you that it is missing some directories.

p.s. btw, you can delete dawn.log as often as you desire.

Did you remember to run Dawn from dos using the following format?
Dawn 2

That will create the directories you are missing.
I had the same problem when I first started :P

Have fun

Here are the dawn numbers:

Syntax:
dawn.exe <#>

1 - runs the mud thru a 'Boot Test Only' (Used by HotReboot).
2 - runs the mud in directory create mode.
3 - runs the mud in create dyntable.cpp ode.
4 - runs the mud in test writing skill table mode.
5 - run the mud in create system\classes.txt mode.
