I am trying to find an explanation of how the ANTs profiler starts a web application running in IIS.
If my application is running and I start the profiler, it appears to start a second instance of the web application. Files that are opened by our log tool ( log4net ) are still locked by the original instance of the application.
Although I can of course restart IIS and then launch the app for the first time using the profiler, I am hoping to understand how it's possible two launch the same app twice. Does the profiler start its own app pool?
