VSTO add-in

Postby bcbille » Wed Mar 12, 2014 2:15 pm

Can I profile a Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO) add-in? This is a set of DLLs written in .NET 4.5 that are loaded and accessed from a Microsoft Office executable. The DLLs add functionality to the Office application, such as PowerPoint, Excel and Word.

How can I "attach" the profiler to the add-in and bypass the code in the Office application?

Thanks Anton.

I found that I could use the technique in the first document in your reply, i.e., "Next .NET processes that will start" from the Welcome screen. This gets me to the .NET code in the add-in.

I could not attach to the application in the Monitor Local Applications window because the add-in is running inside an EXE which is not .NET (e.g., PowerPoint, Word or Excel).

I also found that I could start the Office application as a "Standalone application" from the Welcome screen. The profiler sees the add-in if the "Profile child .NET processes" is checked.

Thanks very much. This is working well now.
