Profiling with 'Classic' Web Scripts with DPS 7



How to use DPS 7.X to profile classic webscript


In DPS 6.6, we had a Web Script entry in the Start=>Program Files=>Compuware directory. For DPS 7.0, the classic web scripting profiling tools have been relocated under the following directory:

Visit Start=>Program Files=>Compuware DevPartner Studio=>Utilities

This is due to the fact that classic scripting (vbscript, jscript) has become obsolete in .NET (both were replaced with VB.NET), so our classic scripting tools are not presented as a feature tool in 7.0, since that is our ".NET release".

To profile with Performance Analysis :

1. Download and install the latest script debugger. The following link is active during this writing. In case it dies, search for "Microsoft Script Debugger Download" in

Download Microsoft Script Debugger

2. Go to your install folder (bu default it should be :

[root]\Program Files\Compuware\DevPartner Studio)

3. Open up the document called "Using DevPartner Studio VB6.pdf"

4. Scroll down to Automatic Performance Analysis and Optimization => Profiling Web Scripts

5. Follow these steps and you should be running okay.

Still having a problem?

Visit your Internet Information Services Snap-In in MMC.exe. This snap in is usually located here: c:\winnt\system32\inetsrv\iis.msc.

Once you open the iis.msc snap-in, go to the Default Web Site location, and ensure the settings are:

a. Home Directory Tab:

Application Protection: Low (IIS Process)

Execute Permissions: Scripts and Executables

b. Web Site Tab:

Connection Timeout: (if you get any timeouts, increase this value to double or triple what is normal for your program).

Now go down to your virtual web site. Right click and go to properties and ensure your settings are like so:

a. Identity Tab: Set to Interactive User

b. Virtual Directory Tab: Application Protection: Low (IIS Process)

Execute Permissions: Scripts and Executables
