Intel® GPA Tip: Workaround for Windows* 8 Store Applications Limitations

Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) provides game developers with the ability to analyze and optimize their games and graphics applications running on either the Windows* OS or the Android* OS (see the Intel GPA Home Page for more information on the specific platforms supported by the product).

However, when analyzing Windows* 8 Store Applications, Intel GPA System Analyzer and Intel GPA System Analyzer HUD do not include the ability to create frame or trace capture files. To workaround this limitation, port your application as a Desktop application, and then use the full Intel GPA suite of tools.

If you have any further questions or comments about this limitation or workaround, please create a new post on the Intel GPA Support Forum.
