Message - 'Cannot start profiling in COM Server mode.'

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on January 18, 2022

AQTime displays this message if an error occurs when you start profiling your application in COM Server mode. There can be several reasons for this:

  • For example, this can happen if your COM server is not registered in the operating system. Make sure your COM server is registered in the system and launch your client application outside of AQTime. If the error still occurs, then the problem resides in your application. Otherwise, the problem is in AQTime. In this case, send a report to SmartBear’s Support Team.

  • Another reason that makes AQTime show this message is that the AQTime Service is not running. To profile your application in COM Server mode, AQTime requires that the service be running. AQTime launches it after you start profiling. If the service has not been launched for some reason, AQTime displays this warning message.

    You can start the service via the Control Panel > Administrator Tools > Services dialog:

    Alternatively, you can start the service by running <AQTime>\Bin\DebugService8x86.exe (on 32-bit operating systems) or <AQTime>\x64\Bin\DebugService8x64.exe (on 64-bit systems) with the -service argument in its command line:

    <AQTime>\Bin\DebuggerService8x86.exe -service
    <AQTime>\x64\Bin\DebuggerService8x64.exe -service

    If this does not help, please reinstall AQTime.
