Well deciphering the log is quite easy. You only need to look at
lines like

Requested font "Arial" at 10.0pt
-> C:/WINDOWS/Fonts/arial.ttf

And in the output of xdvipdfmx for font pathes in lines like

fontmap: ArialMT/H/65536/0/0 ->
C:/WINDOWS/Fonts/arial.ttf(Identity-H)

Also: The log gives more information e.g. the path of the font
actually used. You don't need to know the name of the font file. And
at last: it also helps you to diagnose the problem if you have two
versions of a font with different file names.

Your xetex is outdated. \XeTeXtracingfonts has been added in may
2008:
