When I try to run the current VTune general analysis on my new Windows 8.1 installation, it tells me the driver isn't running. As there is no sep folder in the installation, I don't know where to go to look for a startup script. When I search for docs, I get redirected to linux docs, with which I'm already reasonably familiar. I don't find this topic in the help doc.20
It's possible to run outside the CPU dependent selections, but why put them there with no advice on how to run them?
Is it believable when attempting to find the location where a case hangs when compiled for the Haswell CPU (instead of generic AVX) that VTune Basic shows the time is spent in ntdll, or does the fact that it's necessary to click Stop or set a time limit cause that? When it's stopped by time limit the amplxe-gui self-destructs shortly after "unhandled win32 exception" (but it's all win64). It pops up a locked email and says to send a report.
I'm retiring in about a month and will lose the support account so don't expect to be able to negotiate a problem report maze.
