Vista - vpn debug log and tracefmt.exe

I found that the easiest way to get tracefmt.exe from the Windows XP Service Pack Support Tools is to use cabextract in Cygwin, and bypass the msi package.

1. Download the exe package from Microsoft.
2. Unzip the exe (ie WindowsXP-KB838079-SupportTools-ENU.exe). I used 7zip
3. Open Cygwin, and cd to the extraction dir.
4. cabextract.exe *.cab
5. chmod 755 *
6. cp /c/Windows/System32/Ikeext.etl .
7. ./tracefmt.exe Ikeext.etl

Word!
