We are currently facing an issue with the Profiler, the path to root for live objects is always empty.
I followed the procedure described here, but it didn't help : https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/80740/reference-tree-is-empty

@Jean-Marie Gueirard, I have checked this issue with profiler version 0.38.0.0 and 1.0.1-2 and unable to reproduce this issue.
Please review the screencast and let me know what additional steps we need to follow to reproduce this issue.
While the app is being profiled, paths to roots is not available, it's only when you're done processing, as it needs to generate the whole references tree, which is time consuming, and hence is only done once at the end of the profling session.
So, are you not seeing any paths to roots to any object when the app is finished?
Thanks to @asimk screencast, I just find out that we were missing a step. We were looking at the All allocations tab, without double clicking on an object.
Marking as verified with reference to comment 2 and comment 3.
I was able to observe Paths to Root after ending profiling. However, the profiler doesn't indicate anywhere that Paths to Root isn't populated until after testing. This is hidden knowledge and should be shared to the user if it's intended.
