Performance Tools for Software Developers - ?License Expired? message received even though you have a valid license

After installing Intel® Thread Profiler for Windows* or Intel® Thread Checker for Windows*, when you try to run an Intel® VTune™ Performance Analyzer Wizard, you get a "License Expired" message; even though you have a valid license (e.g. just obtained an Evaluation license).

To resolve this, click the drop-down box and choose Threading Wizards, and select an available wizard. Analyzer wizards refer to Intel VTune Performance Analyzer wizards, which are not covered by the Intel Thread Profiler or Intel Thread Checker license.


Please obtain a valid Intel VTune Performance Analyzer license (e.g. if you have an Evaluation Intel Thread Profiler license, also obtain an Evaluation Intel VTune Performance Analyzer license). Then you can run Analyzer wizards.
