Before starting a profiling session, you configure profiling settings that determine how an application should be profiled. First of all you should specify the type of application you are going to work with. It can be:
- Standalone application
- Windows Store application
- Silverlight application
- Web application deployed under Development Server
- WCF service library
- Web application deployed under Internet Information Server
- Windows service
- Any .NET process
- Smart device application
Then you decide whether you want to profile on the local computer or a remote computer.
The next step is to specify application options. Click one of the above links to read about setting application options for a specific kind of application.
