Unable to locate readtrace..

Dec 17, 2008 at 8:25 AM

I'd really like to try out your application, but i get message at the startup:
"Unable to locate readtrace. Nexus won't be able to load or analyze profiler trace data."

Also when I try to do Import, i get message that *.trc files can't be found.
Error details:

"The system cannot find the file specified (System)"
Program Location:

   at System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithCreateProcess(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)

I had the same problem. I followed the link on the home page of SQL Nexus Tool. (Features - Readtrace).

Hope it will help you.

I've just installed ReadTrace (RMLSetup.exe - gee that was fun over remote desktop), but SQLNexus doesn't seem to be picking up the location of the exe.  Even if I copy the exe into the same folder as SQLNexus.

Any ideas?

I used the following link and it worked for me. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/confirmation.aspx?familyId=b60cdfa3-732e-4347-9c06-2d1f1f84c342&displayLang=en

If you have an older version of RML Utilities, this happens or if you had an older version which did not overwrite the registry key for the RML registration when you upgraded the RML installation.

Navigate to  C:\Program Files\Microsoft Corporation\RMLUtils using Command Prompt and execute the following: orca.exe /R from there.
