1) Create a directory In the root of your C: drive and call it “Script”

2) Copy the attached python script into that "c:\script" directory .

3) Copy the "JobInformation.log" file into that "c:\script" directory as well.

Note: The "jobinformation.log" file is specific to a processing job, and is found in a case's "jobs" folder within the correlated subfolder.

4) Open the processing_profile_extraction.py on python IDLE editor. Click on Run Menu -> Run Module or hit F5 to run the script. 

5) Once you run the script, you will see a Processing_Rules.xml file in your C:\Script directory.
