How can I profile a game that's indirectly started by another process?

How can I profile a game that's indirectly started by another process?

Is it possible to launch a program with GPA monitor turned by assigning a Windows console command for that app?

There are plenty of games, that do not allow you to run them via .exe file. Instead when launching the .exe, they first connect to some service (e. g. Origin/Steam) and then start/restart clean. That makes it impossible to profile them with GPA, and I am trying to find a way around this. A good example game is DOTA 2.

So is it possible?

Hello,

Have you looked at the "auto-detect launched applications" option of the Intel GPA product? Open online help, then search for "auto-detect", and instructions for using this option should appear.

Let me know if this helps.

Damn I am blind! To be honest I could not even think that such an option could exist :). It works indeed and I have successfully captured and profiled a frame from that nasty game!
Thanks again!

Hello,

Glad this worked for you!

Neal
