If you are connecting to a SQL server with the SQL profiler and none of your templates are showing up, compare the versions of the SQL profiler you are running and the version of SQL server that you’re connecting to; there is likely a version mismatch.
If this is the case, what’s likely happening here is that you’re connecting to a SQL 10.50 instance with a SQL 10.0 profiler and the profile templates for 10.50 aren’t present.
In the case of the profiler from SQL 2008 connecting to a SQL 2008 R2 instance, copy your 100 profile templates folder (default install is at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Profiler\Templates\Microsoft SQL Server\100) into a new folder in the same location with the name “1050” i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Profiler\Templates\Microsoft SQL Server\1050.
Then try to reconnect, and you’ll have access to the profile templates and everything will work fine.
