I was evaluating Memory Profiler from a very specific perspective.
I have a production ASP.NET application and users sometimes report issues that I believe might be due to incorrect keys in a central static Dictionary my code maintains.

I am unable to reproduce the issue locally, and fortunately client allows me a small window to run my debugging tools to figure out the problem if needed.

I just used a Trial version of Memory Profiler but at the most it gave me information about number of live objects for any class and retention graph. I did not find a way where I can click one of those objects and view its contents.

Does Memory Profiler (or for that matter, even Performance Profiler) support this use-case? Is there any tool available that I can use to extract values from objects of a running application.

Yes, you can use the instance list

to view the fields and properties of any live object in a particular memory snapshot.
