LocalDB and SQL Profiler with SSMS 2012

I’m not sure why, but for sometime now I thought that it wasn’t possible to run SQL Server Profiler on LocalDb databases to see the SQL queries being issued. To my surprise I found out that it actually is possible after all if you have SQL Server Management Studio 2012!

All you have to do when connecting with SQL Server Profiler 2012 is to connect to the instance named (localdb)\v11.0 

Thanks to http://www.stratospher.es/blog/post/connecting-to-localdb-with-sql-server-management-studio-2012-ssms for pointing this neat trick out
