Support for IntelliTrace events and call information in Windows Azure Projects

    Question

  • Hi there

    I try to make Intellitrace with events and call information work with a window Azure Project. This seems not to work. I get the following message in the IntelliTrace Window:

    "IntelliTrace is not collecting data for this debugging session.

    The project type may not be supported or the process you are debugging may have been either attached to  or launched with IntelliTrace disabled. Restarting the debugging session within Visual Studio may solve this. Please note that IntelliTrace is not supported when attaching to a process that is already running.

    If you have selected a custom location for IntelliTrace recordings, please make sure it is writable by the process being debugged."

    Checking this message on my system I can notice the following:

    • IntelliTrace is enabled
    • Process is NOT attached, but started with pressing F5
    • Restarting debugging did not help
    • Custom location for recordings was not set, VS runs in admin mode.

    So I conclude that Azure projects are not yet supported. Is this true and if yes, by when will this be changed?

    Thanks,

    Marc

  • For locally, you can enable IntelliTrace, but you would have to add the add-in by hand.  If you publish the project but just to a file and look in there you can see how it is added.  And you would have to do that by hand.  Depending on what you want to do, may want to use WriteLines and look at the emulator console instead or just live debug.  Not sure what the reason would be to IntelliTrace locally.

     

    IntelliTrace is enabled for Windows Azure.  Here is a blog showing how to use it:

    For requirements, you have to have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate.  There is also information about using it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff966484.aspx

    Hi Marc,

     

    Did you try steps mentioned in this blog: Using IntelliTrace to debug Windows Azure Cloud Services, you may need new Azure Tools and SDK.

  • Hi Eric

    as a matter of fact I do not want to use IntelliTrace on Azure, I would like to use it in Azure Emulator, locally on my machine.

    Thanks,
