Can't get Show Allocation to work.

I've installed the SSMS Allocation Add-in on my SQL 2005 instance, but when I go to select the view option nothing shows up...

Do you get any sort of error message? If not, does the window display?

Doesn’t display at all now should adjust any settings, options in SSMS?  I’m sure I’m overlooking something simple.<o:p></o:p>

If SSMS is maximised the window can sometime appear underneath the main window. If that doesn't work try a reinstall

I've just created a new release (0.2a) that's under the planned releases tab. It should make sure the window is in the correct place when installed. You'll need to uninstall the previous version first.

Also, before you start the app delete the two .prf files in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Shell\ to make sure the window position is reset.

If that doesn't work there may be a few other things to try...

Thanks for the quite response, and I took you advice and discovered the window was coming up but it was minimized that is why I couldn't see it at first.  I'll go ahead and try out the new release .2a.

Thanks again.
