    Provided the dll is managed code, you should use the 'profile all methods' setting unless you have the source code, debug build, and PDB for the third-party dll. Otherwise you won't see the results for any methods in that dll.
  • Hi there,

    as Brian points out, if you choose 'All methods with source code' you will profile both your exe and the dll that you have added if they are debug builds.

    If you just want to profile methods in the dll you can set up a custom filter on the last page of the profiling wizard. Here you can choose to include or exclude certain namespaces/classes
