    Zombie Debug Shim Process

    If I kill Visual Studio 2010 (devenv.exe), the TestMatrixDebugShim process remains. Starting Visual Studio again will start another TestMatrixDebugShim. The old TestMatrixDebugShim processes will remain until killed manually (or system is restarted).

    This is related to the way TestMatrix currently collects coverage. We are considering to replace TestMatrixDebugShim.exe with a Windows Service in the next version.

    Re: Zombie Debug Shim Process

    This isn't a big issue, since it only occurs if the Visual Studio process exits abnormally (i.e. was killed), but perhaps the shim process could monitor the associated devenv.exe process and exit when it exits? Visual Studio takes up so much memory on its own, a couple zombie shim processes aren't bothering me that much :)

    Re: Zombie Debug Shim Process

    The challenge here is that there is only one shim process regardless how many instances of Visual Studio you open simultaneously, it is not associated with a specific instance and may still be used by another instance even if one VS shuts down.

    Thanks for the feedback, it is good to know this is not a big deal for you. And again, moving this into a Windows Service is still on our list.
