The Intellitrace feature in Visual Studio 2010 does not work correctly

This article has been archived. It is offered "as is" and will no longer be updated.
You may experience one or more of the following Intellitrace issues in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010:

Issue 1

Consider the following scenario. You create a cloud service. You enable the Intellitrace feature. Then, you deploy the service to Microsoft Azure fabric and then a service package file is generated. In this scenario, the Intellitrace binary files are included two times for each role of the cloud service in the package file unexpectedly. 

Issue 2

The Intellitrace feature is disabled on 32-bit operating systems. Therefore, you cannot collect trace information from 64-bit versions of Microsoft Azure instances. 
Cause of Issue 2
This issue occurs because the 64-bit version of the Intellitrace component (Tracelogprofiler.dll) is not installed on 32-bit operating systems.
