Profile Windows Service shows connecting always


I am using dotTrace Profiler 3.1 64 bit application.
OS - Windows 7 Enterprise Sp1 64 bit
Application - 32bit Windows Service application (developed in .Net 4.0)

When I am trying to use dotTrace with our Application, ie, a Windows Service application, it always shows "connecting" status. The "Start Profiling" button is disabled.
When service status was running.

What could be the reason.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

Hi, it may be the effect of other profilers (like ANTS or VS 2010 integrated profiler) that were installed on your machine. Please contact me (, and I'll send you our cleaning utility.
