Because when i`m using a new UI on DX11 frame - i didn`t see this new icon, and it`s look like this.. without this new shiny flame icon :(

Just don`t have hotspot icon :(can someone tell me why? or it`s cause i`m using a gtx 1070 card? Aaaand i don`t have any geometry in inputs in base pass section of frame O_O

Crash of Analyze Application in pixel shader writing to UAVs


I'd like to report a crash and get a possible fix.

I'm developing a DirectX11 renderer, where the pixel shader needs to write into UAV, in particular RWStructuredBuffer<float2x4>.
The Analyze Application tool helped me really a lot and it works very well for the performance debugging of my shaders.
