Fiddler Now Supporting WP7 Emulator

You may have read my previous post on how to get Fiddler to play nicely with the Windows Phone 7 emulator, but now you don’t need to manually make the changes. The latest beta version of Fiddler has improved support for the emulator. You can download the beta here.




Fiddler and WP7 Emulator – Working!

From the Beta SDK onwards, it seemed that there was no easy way of getting Fiddler to work with the emulator. For those unfamiliar with Fiddler, in short, it’s a must-have tool if you’re dealing with web requests for your applications. It lets you monitor the HTTP traffic between your  computer and the web, which is very useful when it comes to debugging web traffic problems in your apps.

Fiddler Alternative for WP7 Emulator?

Update (17/10) – You can now get Fiddler to work with the emulator. Read this post for instructions.

Well, I’ve been trying to get Fiddler working with the Windows Phone 7 emulator, but no luck :(. If anyone has managed to do this, please comment and explain how. I’ve tried various methods, including ones that worked for Android’s emulator, but it seems that I need to be able to change the internet settings of the emulator itself. Even in the unlocked version of the WP7 emulator, I couldn’t find any settings. As an alternative, you might be interested in Microsoft Network Monitor. In my opinion, it’s not as user friendly as Fiddler, but may be of some use to people :).

Comments are welcome from anyone if they have another Fiddler alternative, or know how to get Fiddler working with the emulator (beta)
