Automated Code Tracing

Hello,

In the old days of Turbo Pascal/Turbo Debugger you could watch your code executing. Might be a bit fast these days but something that allows me to watch, or read later, the execution flow would be very very useful. I am aware of the Debug and Trace classes but they require that I manually instrument everywhere the code might go, that would be quite time consuming.

Is there a feature in VS 2008/2010 or a tool that can do this?


Regards,
Mark Leavesley

Wow!!! It's only taken Microsoft, what, 20 years to catch up with Borland in this respect.

I will accept your solution once I've had a play, but this does look like exactly what I am after.

Many thanks.

Shame it's only in the ultimate edition and there are some short comings, you can't open all the nodes at once for instance or just see a plain list of the call history, but it is pretty useful nonetheless.
