ANTS Profiler Crashing

Brian DonahueBrian Donahue Posts: 6,590 New member
Hi Greg,

The problem occurs when you install the .net Framework 2.0 Beta which
comes as part of Microsoft's brand-new 'Express' products. For some reason,
it will break a perfectly healthy profiler installation running on .net
Framework 1.1. Since ANTS Profiler uses Framework 1.0 if it's installed, one
solution would be to install Framework 1.0. This will definitely get rid of
the problem.

It will also work to redirect ANTS Profiler to the older 1.1 Framework
installation by using a config file. If you make a file called
RedGate.Profiler.UI.exe.config and put this information in it:

<?xml version ="1.0"?>
<configuration>
<startup>
<supportedRuntime version="v1.1.4322" />
</startup>
</configuration>

This also does the trick. Please let us know if this information helps!

Regards,

Brian Donahue

    Hi Dave,

    What kind of application are you profiling? Is it a .net console
    application, ASP .net or a Serviced Component (COM+)?

    You can try re-directing RedGate.Licensing.Client and RedGate.Licensing.Helper the same way as the main assembly and see if that straightens it out.

    Not to put too fine a point on it...

    We don't support software running on Beta versions of Framework or SQL Server!
    Microsoft has been notified about the issue so that they can fix their Framework.

    When Framework 2 becomes final, then we will get the software working with it 100%. It's pointless to fix a problem when the Framework can change and break it again.
