The Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) developer tool suite provides a complete toolkit for analyzing and optimizing your games, media, and other graphics-intensive applications.
This article describes a limitation of one of the tools in the Intel GPA suite, the Intel GPA System Analyzer HUD. We will describe the limitation, then provide some suggestions to keep you from encountering the issue.
When using the Intel GPA System Analyzer HUD (Heads-Up Display) to analyze a game, after the HUD appears, switching an application's window between monitors may cause errors in Intel GPA (such as the HUD disappears), or you may see errors in the application (including crashes).
If you see this issue, as a workaround games often provide an option to force use of a particular monitor. You can typically do this through a command line option or using a "config file". For example, some games allow you to startup in windowed mode by appending "-window" to the command line (or "-fullscreen" for full screen mode), and other options may allow you to target a specific monitor. If no option exists for starting the application on a specific monitor, try disabling all secondary screens to force the application to run on a particular monitor.
To use command line options with Intel GPA, right-click on the Intel GPA Monitor in the taskbar notification area, select Analyze Application..., then in the Command Line field enter the pathname of the application and all command line options, then select Run:
