xstudio_console.exe. A DOS box will automatically popup and will display the traces.

Windows start menu > Control Panel > Programs > Java > Advanced > Debugging > Enable tracing
Windows start menu > Control Panel > Programs > Java > Advanced > Java Console > Show console

javaws1287369374028910351.trace. Just look at the last updated time to see what is the latest one
