    Hi @Jayanthy,

    It sounds like there is another profiler already hooked into your process which is blocking ANTS from connecting. If you have an idea of which profiler that may be, can you please disable it while using ANTS? 

    It is possible that ANTS was running previously and after an error these were left, so restarting the computer may help in that circumstance.

    Otherwise, to find out what profiler is already attached, you can download Microsoft's Process Explorer if you don't have it already - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx and then open Process Explorer and look for your process in the list of running processes. Right-click on the process, and then click on the Environment tab, then check for a "COR_ENABLE_PROFILING" and "COR_PROFILER" as in the screenshot below

    It may say specifically what profiler otherwise, you will be able to find out the application from the GUID.
