When I was using MSVC 6, I had access to a rather simple yet infinitely useful profiler which was built-in the IDE and came with VisualStudio 6. I''m currently at work, where we use .NET. Apparently, Microsoft removed the profiler from MSVC .NET...? How or where can the profiler be found? Having access to this would be really useful. If it''s gone, any idea why MS decided to remove the profiler? It would sound rather dumb of them and unlikely... Thanks!

The profiler is definately out of the Standard version of VS .NET, I can''t find it in Pro either (it may be there I didn''t look too hard), and I don''t know anything about Enterprise.
I don''t know why they removed it, it was kinda handy, but there are other profilers available (for free or cash). VTune comes to mind for a costing one, but there is one from AMD for free, and possibly a couple others (try searching the forums I think it''s been asked before fairly recently).

Hrm, that''s what I feared. Well, DevPartner sounds rather promising, thanks

Still can''t see why they''d remove the profiler... Maybe some engineer at MS forgot to add it to their final release. Stupid drunks.
