Profiling with AQTime

Hi,

 

I am trying to profile my ID2020 plug-in using AQTime 8.80 and VC++2017.

 

I changed a couple of build settings as instructed in the AQTime documentation, and tested that my plug-in, recompiled with those settings still works perfectly.

 

However, when I try to launch InDesign 2020 via the AQTime UI to profile my PLN, InDesign does appear in the Windows Task Manager, but its RAM usage stops at 8.4MB and the splash screen never appears.

 

Are there any settings that I should be aware of, to be able to use AQTime to profile my plug-in ?

 

Very best regards,

 

Olivier BELTRAMI

Hi Eugene,Thank you very much for your response.In the meantime support at SmartBear (the editor of AQTime) suggested that I try launching InDesign manually and then use the profiler's "Attach to Process", as a workaround.When I do this, then I see 2 InDesign processes (screenshot below), although the Windows Task Manager only shows one process.

I'm not familiar with the AQTime or what is happening here. 

Have you any more info or screenshots of what is happening?

Hi Eugene,

Thank you very much for your response.

Attached is the PDF log of the profiler, showing all the components of InDesign getting loaded, apparently with success.

But then, nohing more seems to happen. InDesign is loaded in memory, but only uses 9.4MB of RAM (image below), and the spalsh screen is not even shown. so something must be blocking the launch, but I cannot figure out what.

Very best regards,

Olivier

I don't know much about this stuff - don't even know who to ask...

Let me do some digging and see if I can find anyone to give you hand.

When I do this, then I see 2 InDesign processes (screenshot below), although the Windows Task Manager only shows one process. Trying to attach to one of these works, but trying to attach to the other fails. Usually the first process is the good one, but not always (but one of the 2 always works).

So, I have a workaround, and I am a happy camper.

I hope this post helps someone else.

Very best regards,

Olivier

PS: Any idea what that second process is, and why the profiler cannot attach to it ?
