OIC, sorry I thought you were talking about some logs to do with Catalyst other than the standard inetpub W3SVCxxx server logs.
Here is what IIS logs show when I access the application.. (IP's have been obfuscated)
#Software: Microsoft Internet Information Services 7.5

The first 3 GET entries are when I visit the root application URL (which displays the Catalyst welcome page) the 4th is the entry when navigating to the path for the LibraryDocs.pm controller.
As for the Data::Dumper information you requested, you will need to give me more guidance because I can't get it to output anything?
Firstly I cannot find the context variable '$c' , there is a '$ctx' , I assume this is what was meant?
After each assignment but nothing was displayed in the browser , nor were there any entries in the IIS logs.
I have tried 'print' , in front of those commands, nothing is outputted and nothing appears in the logs.
I've also tried 'die' but all I then get in the browser is a 400 error 'Bad Request'.
I've even outputted a header first with :- print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";
Before trying to output the variables, but again all I get is a 'Bad Request' error in my browser.
In fact I have now removed all added code by myself, the devel server fires up and I can use localhost:3000 to navigate to my application and it works fine.
However, using IE to navigate to the production IIS7 URL, all I get now is 400 Bad Request, so now saying 'nothing works' is an accurate statement?
You really need to give me more guidance if I am to provide any of the information you request.

I am pretty sure that you have to look where your webserver logs to.
With Apache it is possible to configure the log and errorlog location.
I suppose the same is possible for IIS7

Look for the file Catalyst/Engine.pm. then search for "prepare_path"
