Analysing a service

Hi all,

I have a likely memory corruption in my project and am considering running a trial of Inspector.

The problem is on Win7, in a native X64 app that is a service running as a LocalService.

How do I make my service get run automatically by with Inspector? (I'm expecting some 'imagefileexecutionoptions' style answer...)

Derek,

Intel Inspector XE is designed to monitor and analyze an application from start to finish. The following Forum posts I believe provide additional information about your inquiry.

Let us know if this does not answer your question or if you need additional information.

Thanks

Hi, thanks for the reply Rob.

I understand IXE is designed to monitor & analyze from start to finish (or per module with Update 5).

What I am asking is whether users of IXE have had success with monitoring/analyzing windows services (start to finish).

I'm guessing it is as simple as putting the correct IXE cmdline in:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\foosvc.exe -> Debugger[REG_SZ] = [IXE cmdline for analyzing foosvc]

I'm just checking if people have done this, or something similar, and can report success / failure.

Thanks
