Profile ASP.Net in IIS: at least two sites are bound ..."


i would like to trace a asp.net 3.5 webapp on IIS7 (Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 Ger), but when i start the profiling i get this error, regardless which port i use:

Could not start IIS.

bei bt.Launch()
bei RedGate.Profiler.Session.ProfilerSession.h()

Caused by:

Could not start IIS.
bei bt.Launch()

Caused by:

Ambiguous site selection - at least two sites are bound to the same IP address and port
stack trace:
bei RedGate.Profiler.Engine.Startup.IIS.IISUtilities.a(Uri )

This is my Setting:

the IIS hay multiple IPs bound (, as i need to run seversl different Projects.

Any ideas, as the ANTS Profiler is in this version completely useless for me :evil: .

    Hi Christoph,

    Thanks for reporting this. We are aware of the issue and in fact have recently fixed it in our latest dev branch. Normally I'd be more than happy to offer you a private build but we've made significant changes to the IIS support all of which, at present, are entirely untested. I should be in a position to offer you a build early in the New Year.

    Sorry I can't be of more immediate assistance.
