  • Hi,

    That's a little strange. Could you try removing (or renaming out of the way) the PDB file(s) for the assemblies or executables you're profiling? That will mean that you will only get method level timings, but it will narrow it down to whether it's a problem with our instrumentation of your code (which we do to get the line timings), or something else.

    Many thanks,
    Rob

  • I have the same problem trying to profile a visual basic windows forms project. With PDB files ANTS does not start, after removing PDB files profiler works. I think maybe it could be due to Visual Studio 2005 Service Pack 1, one of the fixes includes a new PDB format in Visual Basic projects. See http://support.microsoft.com/kb/926405:

    "... the new .pdb file format is not fully compatible with the old .pdb file format"

    Hope this helps Red-Gate developers to solve the problem.
  • Hi,

    We're fairly confident we've got this one fixed in ANTS 3 - for which there will be a beta release some time in the next week or so, hopefully. If you'd like to give that a try, we'll be posting details of the beta in this forum.

    Hope that helps,
    Robert
