    Tip: On Microsoft Windows* systems, the version and build number are also in the file ThreadCheckerSupport.txt found in your installation folder that is typically C:Program FilesIntelVTune.

    On Linux* systems, the version and build number are also in the file ThreadCheckerSupport.txt found in your installation directory that is typically /opt/intel/itt.

    If you cannot locate the ThreadingCheckerSupport.txt file, you can also get the version and build number in the VTune™ Performance Analyzer:
