Profiling an AutoCAD dll

I just downloaded the 14 day trial and must say that I am seriously impressed with this software.

However, the majority of my development is add-on functionality for AutoCAD and not executable applications. Is there a way to get Ants working if there is no EXE and it's running within AutoCAD with no single entry point for the dll?

Crossing my fingers...

    Hi Jim,

    ANTS Profiler will be notified of managed code that runs in any process, whether it's managed .NET or not. If your dll loads the .NET runtime, then you should be able to point ANTS Profiler at the autocad executable and get the add-in to run.

    This is just a basic guideline though, and there may be technical reasons why it won't work, for instance if the managed code is invoked in a totally separate process. In the vast majority of cases, though, profiling the executable, even if it is unmanaged to begin with, works beautifully.
