Process names not found running adplus_aspnet to debug

I am using the Debugging Tools for Windows v6.5.3.8 on Windows 2003 Server
Web Edition SP1 and following the troubleshooting procedure from Microsoft
"Debugging Contention Problems" at
I downloaded dbgnetfx.exe from Microsoft Downloads and extracted the zip
files included to the same folder I installed the debugging tools in (the
default). When running adplus_aspnet.vbs, however, the script was unable to
find any processes by PID or name :

cscript adplus_aspnet.vbs -crash -pn w3wp.exe -o c:\temp

The error I received was :

One or more process names specified on the command line using the '-pn'
switch, were not found. Please doublecheck the process name(s) and run
Autodump+ again.

After looking at the tlist.exe output and the code for adplus_aspnet, it
looks like the tlist parsing code expects normal tlist.exe output. The
tlist.exe -t output that I am seeing instead in the text files in the adplus
output folder have the PID as the second row instead of the first. For the
code to run correctly, I had to modify adplus_aspnet.vbs (I have version
5.03) and do a global search and replace on arResults(0) with arResults(1).
Also lines 1995-2004, 2925-2934, and 2991-3000 need to be modified to use
arResults(2) instead.

I am now able to successfully run adplus_aspnet.vbs. It looks like
adplus.vbs has a different parsing method for tlist (and a newer version), so
apparently it has been updated and works correctly. Maybe the documentation
on MSDN should be updated to reflect this fact?

Thanks for any input,
