Occasionally, you may experience problems accessing the full menus of the ANTS addins in Visual Studio 2005 and 2008 in that the menu items are grayed out entirely.
The following actions can be used to try to correct the problem:
1. Export your current VS settings into a file via Tools->Import And Export Settings
2. Choose the Visual Studio command prompt tool from the start menu, under the Visual Studio program group.
3. Execute the following commands:
>regasm /codebase "%programfiles%\\red gate\\ants performance profiler 5\\RedGate.Profiler.Five.AddIn.dll"
[You may get a warning here which is safe to ignore but you should finally get the message: "Types registered successfully"]
Now your add-in should be re-initilaized. Ensure you have a ready-to-run project loaded into VS and the addin integration should work perfectly.
4. Import your saved settings via Tools->Import And Export Settings
Profiling in VS2008 should now work as well as running it from VS2008.

Often, its a case of switching off some of the default filters.
