I recently downloaded a trial version of the Intel Vtune software (2011 Update 3). I have it installed on a Windows XP SP3 machine and was trying to use it to on a C# project created in VS 2010. I created a project in VTune and trying to run the hotspot analysis. It failed with the following error:
Error: Assertion '(4 ) + (2 +2 +4 +4 + cpu_no*(2 +leaf_no*(2*4 +4*4 ))) == pos' failed. For more information, please visit the technical support forum at https://software.intel.com/sites/support/\\n
I proceeded to try the Tachyon example C++ project which resulted in the same error.
