Illegal characters in path.

Just a minor issue. When I attempt to open the "aspnet_wp.exe" process, I get the message "Illegal characters in path." It seems to open the process successfully, but I'm assuming it's complaining about the underscore in the process name.

    There seems to be some wierdness in the environment of the worker process application -- aspnet_wp.exe's path includes a question-mark. .NET's System.IO.File namespace seems incapable of resolving this path, which seems to me a bug in the framework. See here for more information.

    Perhaps creating an application config file for Memory Tracker forcing the supportedRuntime to .NET 2.0 will make this work. I'm not in a position to try it right now, but I'll see if I can look into it later.

    Creating a RedGate.Memory.UI.exe.config file does solve the invalid path problem for aspnet_wp.exe:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
          <supportedRuntime version="v2.0.50727"/>
    There seems to be a problem accessing some bit of memory now, however. Hopefully it works for you.
