Flash trace log file in Windows 7

In my recent project, I need to look at the Trace output from the Flex application outside Flash Builder.
I have Windows 7 as my operating System.
Following are the steps to setup trace log file:
  1. Download and install Flash player debug version. Check at www.flashplayerversion.com for the version details.
  2. Create a new file named mm.cfg in your home directory. To figure out home directory open a command wondow and type echo %HOMEDRIVE%
        TraceOutputFileEnable=1
        ErrorReportingEnable=1
        MaxWarnings=500
        TraceOutPutFileName=C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\Logs\flashlog.txt
    
    Last line is optional if you are fine with the output file location.
  3. Open web browser and your Flash application.4. Use a tool like baretail to check the log file.
