I want to use the Visual Studio profiler tool to work on the performance of an out of process (EXE) COM server.  I've followed the steps in help, but never get any profile activity when the other applications use methods on the COM object.  Anyone have any success doing this?  I get some profiler output, but I think it is just startup stuff.

Thanks

Ray

You should try to start the server from VisualStudio in Profile Mode and then have the clients connect to it.

I've tried many things to get this to work..  I think this issue is that the profiling can't handle a call coming in from another process.  It is only profiling the initialization of the COM server object.  For now I have modified the COM server to simply run the code I want to profile on it's startup/init processing.
