I’ve used a similar tool for SharePoint back in the day (around 2007) and I remember how much easier my life was. Funny enough, never really considered looking for this for CRM until recently.

Browsing though CodePlex looking for interesting stuff, I stumbled upon another great project by Tanguy.

You can get more details on CRM Trace Reader, as well as download the solution HERE.

Items that come in handy include:

  • most common filters just a click away


  • color highlights/separation of line items
  • improved readability for formatted XML


  • Overall pretty snappy even when opening a large number a trace files.

Definitely a “+” and highly recommended.
