Performance Profiler Causes XamlParseException

Postby AdamsGuitar » Mon Nov 28, 2011 1:56 pm

I'm attempting to evaluate the Performance Profiler, and I'm using it on my WPF client application. Whenever I launch a session for my application (whether from within the Performance Profiler application or through the VS Addin), it immediately exits. When I check the Application event log, I see that my application was terminated because of an uncaught XamlParseException. I do not get this exception when I run my application through the VS debugger.

Below is a summary of the relevant event log entries:

Can I just check- does this happen with all profiling modes - have you tried sampling mode too?

It does; I've tried all of the modes in the dropdown and they all produce the same error.

I notice that it lists a FileNotFoundException for System.Windows.Interactivity.dll earlier in the timeline before it lists the XamlParseException shortly before the profiling session terminates. The odd thing is that the assembly is present and installed (and, I'm fairly certain, in the GAC; I'll have to check when I get back to work shortly, though) and the application runs perfectly fine from within the VS debugger.

I'd need to see a memory dump to understand exactly what happened. There are a few ways to do this but we have an effective way with minimal configuration needed:

You can download a small debugger from us if you don't have Windows debugging tools:
ftp://support.red-gate.com/utilities/AutoDumper.zip

Extract all files to a directory,

Run

Cscript adplus.vbs -crash -pn <name of process>

(Or you could try

Cscript adplus.vbs -hang -pn <name of process>)

If more than one process exists by the same name, you can use -P <pid> instead of -pn (work out which process number to debug using Windows Task Manager)

This then dumps files to disk on a crash or hang trigger. If the files are very large, I can set up an FTP account so you can upload it to us.
Or you can often see the exception by loading the dump file in windbg.exe and running "!anaylyze - v")

I discovered the issue. While the problem still baffles me, it does not appear to be related to the profiler. When I tried running my application alone (i.e. not attached to the VS debugger or to the profiler), I have the same issue, but the application works fine in the debugger. It has something to do with parsing the XAML in a style file that I've included.

If anyone is interested in reviewing the problem (again, not related to the profiler), you're welcome to have a look here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8299 ... o-debugger

FWIW, Once I comment out the offending style definitions, the profiler can attach and function normally. Thanks for your help!
