Performance: ASP.NET process not being registered by vsperfmon

Problem: by following these instructions: TN_1206: Profiling ASP.NET in instrumentation mode from the command line, I was not getting the w3wp.exe process being registered by vsperfmon, so no .vsp file was being generated.

Solution: make sure to call vsperfmon with the /crosssession parameter
