Visual Studio Performance Analyzer not profiling loaded DLLs

Posted on 2014-08-07

I am new to profiling.  I am using Visual Studio 2012 Pro.  I have started the "Performance Analyzer" through the Wizard but all I get is a report on my main EXE.  None of the loaded DLLs are profiled...that I can see.

Is there a setting or two that I need to change?

    Are your DLLs in the same folder as your EXE file?
    Also, in the Performance Explorer window, you can add the DLL explicitly by right clicking in the target node and selecting "Add Target Binary", and picking the DLLs that you want to analyze.
