Better: just create it (and refresh it each time you need it)
it will enable access to INSTALL-Tool for 30 minutes after each touch 
(and will be touched for each page-call inside the install-tool)

in a fresh installation you may ignore the deprecation log

you may start the basic install-tool with

try to fill in the needed configuration in the "basic configuration" 
(e.g. database connection) which is missing.
then start "database analyser" and do a 'compare'. As no tables exist 
you may generate all tables.

in the same section 'Create "admin" user'.

now you can login to the normal TYPO3 backend and start a new page

before this you may visit "all configuration" and disable deprecation 
log: search for [enableDeprecationLog] and empty the value (storing is 
done at the end of the very long page).
