I am looking for Spy++. I believe it should be included in Visual Studio 2017 since the latest Visual Studio help content references it:https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/debugger/introducing-spy-increment.

Problem

I have just done a clean install of Visual Studio 2017, but Spy++ does not exist in the file system. I can't find it.

Question

So I guess I need to select certain "workflows" when installing Visual Studio to have Spy++ installed? Anyone know if this is correct? And if so, which workflow/feature do I need?

Setup

  • Windows 10
  • Visual Studio Professional 2017 15.1 (26403.3)

It's part of the C++ profiling tools component.

Install the Visual Studio C++ core features component to get Spy++.
