Trouble: I have just installed RevDeBug, but it doesn’t seem to work. What’s wrong?

Shoot: Ok, there may be multiple reasons behind this:

  • Do you have AVG, Avast or similar antivirus installed? Try to turn off sending of the anonymous usage statistics by going to your Visual Studio, and clicking Tools/Options/RevDeBug/General. Alternatively you can turn off the antivirus.
  • You might have turned on Record Server mode by mistake. It’s meant for recording on production. Go to Visual Studio and click on RevDeBug Menu/RevDeBug/Settings. There make sure to turn Record Server off.
  • The Recording Mode might be turned to off in the settings. Go to Visual Studio and from RevDeBug Menu/RevDeBug Settings check if your recording mode is set to either monitoring or recording.
  • Your project doesn’t meet the Requirements.
  • You forgot to select a project to be recorded. Take a look in your Visual Studio and open RevDeBug pane by going to RevDeBug Menu/RevDeBug. On the status tab of the RevDeBug pane you’ll notice all the projects from your currently open solution listed. Make sure that you hit the checkboxes next to the projects you want to be recorded.
  • Your CPU may be overworked. In a case of 100% CPU usage, the projects may not be recorded correctly. Try giving it a break. Press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager. Go to Processes and see what is accounting for the majority of your CPU usage.
