dotMemory can be launched in three ways:
This mode is ideal for application where the original project or source code is not always available or when we want to run dotMemory without having Visual Studio installed or launched. dotMemory installs in the Windows Start Menu for easy access.
This mode is ideal when we want to profile an existing project running under Visual Studio. In order to run dotMemory, open a project and select the menu.
The dotMemory.exe command-line tool is ideal when you need to automate the profiling process, e.g., when running profiling on a continuous integration server. For more details refer to Using dotMemory Command-Line Profiler.
