Does anyone know of workrounds or diagnostics for invalid dump files? The only thing I've seen is a comment to avoid older VTune installation licenses appearing on the "path" and a problem with xed.exe that should now be fixed. On my machine I don't have older vtune information anywhere in the environment or license file, and the data collecting phase proceeded without errors, yet I get an erroras below.

I also tried capturing the command lines of processes being launched using procmon.exe as another user reported a problem with xed but all the launched processes started fine.
