Hi ,

I am aware that this tool can be used to programs developed on .NET languages. But can this also profile on WIN exeutables like DLLHOST.exe ?

.NET Memory Profiler can only profile processes that loads the .NET runtime. So you cannot profile a native Windows executable, unless it at some point loads the .NET runtime, e.g. by using COM objects that are implemented in .NET.
