Mx Admin password when starting runtime from Modeler

The mendix business modeler generates a new admin password everytime you start it locally from the modeler. Sometimes you want to know the password, for example to change the loglevels using a script as described in an earlier post as you need it to set the x-m2ee-authentication http header.

The easiest way to determine this password is by looking up the environment variables of the java process for your runtime. Simplest tool to use is the process explorer, as illustrated below.
