ExpressProfiler [*] changed version info Feb 15, 2016 Create May 24, 2017

ExpressProfiler (aka SqlExpress Profiler) is a simple and fast replacement for SQL Server Profiler with basic GUI and integration with Red Gate Ecosystem project.

Can be used with both Express and non-Express editions of SQL Server 2005/2008/2008r2/2012/2014 (including LocalDB) Distribution package contains both standalone version of ExpressProfiler (can be used without installation) and installation package.

Breaking news! ExpressProfiler is now part of Red Gate ecosystem project ([url:])! (framework is not included in installation package and should be downloaded and installed manually). If you don't have SIPF framework then installation package simply installs ExpressProfiler. Both standalone ExpressProfiler application and Ecosystem installer are digitally signed.
