Monitoring ISAPI works for:
•Native ISAPI extensions.
•Mixed mode ISAPI extensions (native ISAPI that uses .Net code).
If you are working with native ISAPI you must use the NT Service API in your service as well as using the Monitor ISAPI method below.
To start monitoring ISAPI:
Or use the shortcut
Monitor IIS and ISAPI
Set the dll to monitor, the web root, the IIS process, an optional web browser to use and an optional url to launch, and click OK.
•ISAPI DLL type or Browse to set the ISAPI DLL that we're monitoring
•IIS web type or Browse to set the web root for the IIS website we're working with
•IIS process to monitor select the IIS process we're working with
•Web Browser select the web browser that you're going to use to load the web page
•URL to open in browser type the web page and arguments you want to load to cause the ISAPI to be loaded in IIS
•OK resets IIS, setups all the variables, copies DLLs and settings into the web root and starts the web browser to load the specified web page
•Type of data collection Are you only interested in Native data, .Net data or both Native data and .Net data?
•Native Only Ignore all .Net data in the target application.
•.Net Only Ignore all Native data in the target application.
•Mixed Mode Collect both Native and .Net data from the target application
This setting cannot be changed after the application is launched
•Collect data from application If it's the startup procedure you want to validate, obviously start collecting data from launch.
Depending on your application, and what you want to validate, you may want to start collecting data as soon as injection has happened, or do it later.
If your program has a complex start-up procedure, initialising lots of data, it may be much faster not to collect data until the program has launched.
If it's the startup procedure you want to validate, obviously start collecting data immediately.
The first time you work with Web Development Server and Coverage Validator you may experience a delay during startup. This is most like because symbols are being downloaded from Microsoft's symbol servers to match the DLLs and assemblies on your machine.
