I am using the trial version of Visual Studio 2005 Profiler.
Then I tried using the attach to process feature to test my .exe file.
But upon running the .exe file, the list for the attach to process feature is empty.
What is causing this and how can I resolve it?
Visual Studio 2005 Profiler Attach to Process Issue
Maybe that feature is not enabled yet and that is why you are getting an empty list when you try to run the process.
Use the steps below to attach to a running process:
1. With you visual studio application opened, you will need to go to the Performance Explorer, and from there you will right click the performance session, and thereafter you will click on the Attach/Detach option. You will see the Attach Profiler to Process dialog box next.
2. From the window you will just click the image name that you want to attach, and then choose attach.
3. And that is it, you will have successfully attached to process that way.
Hope this helps.
