Can I trace a .net add-on for Internet Explorer?

Hi, I have a product that is implemented as an Internet Explorer extension (Browser Helper Object). Can I use dotTrace to profile this?
The add-on is compiled to a dll, exposes a COM interface, is registered with IE via registry and then loaded when IE starts. In Visual Studio I can debug it simply by having iexplore.exe as the startup application.

Any tips on getting dotTrace to work would be great.

thanks,

Rory

Hi,

Have you tried to profile startup project from VS?
If you have "iexplore.exe as the startup application" it should work.

If it doesn't, then try to Profile-> StandAlone Application -> Select path to iexplore.exe and start.
IE will start with attached profiler.

WBR,
