The .NET Tracer is distributed as a zip package named cs-dotnet-tracer-<VERSION>.zip. When you extract this package, it’ll create a directory named cs-dotnet-tracer-<VERSION> that contains the following files:

├── cs_dotnet_tracer_32.dll
├── cs_dotnet_tracer_64.dll

You can move these files anywhere on your system. They don’t have to remain in the cs-dotnet-tracer-<VERSION> directory.


These files are OS-specific, and you can safely delete those that don’t apply:

  • Windows - .dll files (2 required)
  • Linux - .so file
