VSPTree is alive!

I've been using Windows 8 for the last couple of months and have been having a great time with it. It's Windows 7 with a nice flat UI, much faster I/O. Stability is the same, and pretty much have never opened a metro app. I'm not even sure how to use those correctly. The new Start Menu is just a very big start menu to me.

Anyway I digress, I needed to profile something and went with the usual suspects. CodeAnalyst, Got no data. AQTime, failed to launch the exe. Very Sleepy, worked but no hierarchical call graph. Tried to resurrect VSPTree with the VS2010 profiler and I got a driver not allowed error.

Oh well. Some digging around and I found Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2012.

So I took a little time and updated VSPTree to work with it, and added some minor usability updates. It's not the best application in the world, but sometimes it's handy just to have it.

VSPTree 0.5 : Now with Windows 8 64 bit support. Here.
