Managed Stack Explorer is a simple executable, no install required, that can be copied and run anywhere the .NET Framework 2.0 is installed. MSE uses the Debugging and Profiling APIs to attach and then immediately detach from an application, only suspending the application / thread for the minimum amount of time required to obtain the stack trace.
This download contains the code signed version of Managed Stack Explorer 1.0, written internally by Microsoft. Visit the Managed Stack Explorer Project Homepage on CodePlex for source code, community-collaboration, and updates.
A couple years old, but it’s an easy bet we’re going to see .Net 2/3/3.5 (aka CLR 2) code around for years yet to come, so this utility (which has source included ;) still has some legs.
And of course having the source (C#) is a huge plus in my book… ;)
