Jeff,

Your request is not clear enough. You said you wanted to find a solution 
to a expression; however, an expression without any ==, <, <=, >, or >= 
symbol is neither an equation nor an inequality, so it is not solvable.

You should provide a complete expression, say

k/(-((t - Log[E^t + d*k])/d)) == 0

Then, you could use Reduce, for instance, as in

In[1]:=
expr = k/(-((t - Log[E^t + d*k])/d)) == 0;
Reduce[expr, k, Integers]
Reduce[expr, k, Complexes]

Out[2]= False

Out[3]= t - Log[E^t] != 0 && (d == 0 || k == 0)

Regards,
Jean-Marc
