Silverlight in-browser profiling stops with no results
Published 14 May 2018
With the release of 10.1, we have officially removed support for Microsoft Silverlight due to its deprecation and lack of support in modern browsers. To use ANTS Memory Profiler with Silverlight applications, please downgrade to ANTS Memory Profiler 10.0.
When profiling a Silverlight application running in Internet Explorer, ANTS Memory Profiler may disconnect from the session and start summarizing results.
How to fix
This can be caused by a number of different issues:
|An instance of iexplore.exe is already running in the background, and the Profiler attaches to that instance.||Use Task Manager to check that no instances of iexplore.exe are running.|
|Internet Explorer restarts in 'protected mode'.||Ensure your Internet Explorer settings allow it to run as administrator.|
In other cases, if the Silverlight application is configured to run out-of-browser, profile the application in out-of-browser mode.
If you continue to experience problems, please contact Redgate Support.
