Memorial Day Weekend Hobby Project Preview–Limited Time Only

Limited to this weekend only, I am making 64 bit preview editions of the following tools available:

  • SfxCreator - A simple self-extracting executable generator

  • DebugViewer - An update to Mark Russinovich's DebugView, fully implemented in .NET using Microsoft's MDbg stack

  • Queue & Performance Monitoring Suite for Project Server - A set of utilities for monitoring Project Server's queue system, plus SharePoint’s Universal Logging System, and performance counters (including charting!).

All of these tools are very BETA at this point, and I make no guarantee about them whatsoever, and neither does my employer.  My employer, by the way, keeps me plenty busy so if you want changes or additions, it may take some time.  Source code is NOT available for these tools at this time. 

.NET 3.5 SP1 is required before you can unpack the setup MSIs let alone run the tools.

If you have questions, please contact me through comments.  If you encounter bugs, which you will, use the Help\Send Feedback feature in each tool to tell me about any problems.

Download is here (27 mb):


Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

New Debug Viewer Tool

This is coming out after I get the Project Server Queue Monitor out.  I haven’t had much time. Pretty busy at my real job right now…


If you are going to use the MDbg library in your app…


[MTAThread] // MDbg is MTA threaded
static void Main() { … };

I did this when I first started working on my debug viewer tool, but moved some types around and forgot to re-add it and spent an HOUR staring at my screen trying to figure out why everything stopped working…
