I just downloaded a trial version of the Performance Analyser and followed the instructions for installing it, including giving it the .lic file that was sent to me, and although I can run it I cannot start profiling an application. When I try to create a "Quick performance analysis wizard" I get a dialog box with the message "Not able to connect to the license server for Intel VTune Performance Analyser."
Trying to install the FLEX server that came with it resulted in similar problems. I have also tried using the serial number that was sent to me when I registered, to no avail.
I checked my firewall but cannot see any connections being blocked.
There is nothing in the instructions I received apart from giving the installer my .lic file that indicate I am doing anything wrong.
Can anyone help? I am trying to test VTune with an eye to a possible purchase but initial impressions aren't good. :-( This is very difficult software to get running.
