I want to install (setup.exe) a software but before I go this, before I do this I want to know where it will install and what it will be changed.

Is there a software log new files and change?

Also how to monitor a specific software what IP/address its connecting to on the Internet?

You can do this using Sandboxie, it has a Resource Access Monitor.

For more general logging outside of a preventive Sandbox, there is Process Monitor.
