dotTrace not working with VS 2008 Web Applications
This morning I downloaded the latest build of dotTrace to profile my web application running under ASP.NET Development Server. I had a bit of problem specifying the correct web application path and I was getting this message.
It's was time to use IIS, since all my local web applications connect to a remote database server and I use the built-in web server for development, the web application gave a annoying 'Cannot connect to remote SQL Server' bug when run in IIS, I installed dotTrace on the remote server but it always showed 'Connecting' status, without further delay I copied the database to my local SQL Server and ran dotTrace again.
After 2-1/2 hours of trying I finally gave up and now looking to download ANTS Profiler.Hope it works.
Were you able to get this working? If not could you describe the error you received when starting the web server from dotTrace?
