Here is a quick tip: If you want to use Snoop on a WPF application running with elevated permissions, you need to run Snoop with elevated permissions too, or else your application will not appear in the application’s list displayed by Snoop.
Thankfully, it is really easy to run Snoop in elevated mode in Windows 7:
- Press Ctrl-Shift on your keyboard.
- Click on the Snoop icon in the Taskbar or in the Start menu.
Props for this quick tip go to my colleague Frank Preuss at IdentityMine :)
Note: If you do develop WPF applications, and don’t use Snoop yet, well you have to try it. It is like wanting to develop .NET without using Reflector. It’s possible, but it is painful.
Snoop is a great tool developed by Pete Blois (of the Expression team). It is a must have in every WPF developer’s toolbox.
