          Some links on the Welcome page in GPS don't work. It's looking for conectionroot.html in the current directory, for instance, when it's actually all in the 'html' folder rather than 'Welcome'.

          Also, if you just unzip the package, Windows will set the 'blocked' flag on all the files if it came from the Internet. That means the CHM help file doesn't work till you go to Windows Explorer and unblock the file.

              The Welcome page opens directly within the tool. It is not intended that the user open these directly in a web browser.  The links that don't work redirect from within the tool to the built in help system.

              Also - can you give more information on the circumstances under which the 'blocked' flag is set.  I haven't seen this on any of the systems I've tested with. Which operating system and browser versions does this occur with?

                  Sure, I understand that. But the links still don't work even within the program, and the page shown is clearly the HTML content in the 'Welcome' subfolder.

                  Windows Vista Business x64 SP1, file downloaded through Firefox. Any file sourced from the internet gets the Windows 'blocked' flag applied by default, which is what causes executables to display that "are you sure you want to run this application, files downloaded from the net might be harmful" dialogue when you run them. I also found this had been applied to the CHM after unzipping. Presumably Windows replicates the blocked flag to the unzipped files when decompressing - at least when using the built-in Windows unzipper. I used that, not WinZip or 7-zip etc. I only noticed this because with this flag in place, the CHM won't display the contents of any topic, just IE navigation error pages.

                Will there be a Linux version?

                  Looks great!  Any timeframe for OpenGL support?

                  OpenGL is critical for cross-platform development, so I hope this will come soon.

                    I can only hope that the next version is not too far off. I don't want to wait another year and a half. GPU PerfStudio 2.0 is nice, but it could use at least some fixes of shader debugging.

                        Hey Et,

                        Could you describe the issues with shader debugging that you're seeing? If you have any repro cases you could email me that would be much appreciated.

                         

                        Cheers,

                        Seth.

                            I got this to work somehow. I have the client and server on Win7 32-bit running on the same machine with a 5870. Unfortunately all the ms are 0.000 with one exception that is 0.001 ... something is wrong. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I looked into the UAC. On Win7 I have a slider to reduce it and I reduced it to the lowest level. The bat file that switches on the performance counters said it was successful.

                            Your help is appreciated,

                            - Wolf
