Step 0 problem - error when drilling down to source code, even for classic.exe

I have just installed CodeAnalyst 2.94.718.0, and when I run the classic.exe example that comes with the code, I get an error (details below) when I try to drill down into the source-code.

Help | System Information included at bottom.

Here is what I am doing:

- Start | CodeAnalyst.exe

- File | new | project name = classic | OK

- On the "session settings dialog":

1) Changed to "time-based profile"

2) Launch= "C:\Program Files\AMD\CodeAnalyst\SampleCode\classic\Release\classic.exe"

3) Enable "stop data collection when the app exits" and "profile the duration of the app execution"

- Click OK

- Click Green "start profiling" icon.

- Classic.exe runs, finishes in about 10-15 seconds.

- CodeAnalyst loads SystemData/SystemGraph/Processes tabs.

- When I doubleclick on "classic.exe" from the Module name list on the System Data tab, there is a few second pause, and then I get a dialog title "Code Analyst Error". The error is "The specified module (\\Device\HarddiskDmVolumes\PhysicalDmVolumes\BlockVolume1\Program Files\AMD\CodeAnalyst\SampleCode\classic\Release\classic.exe) cannot be found. No module information can be shown.

I saw another post about how this is a problem if the drive is encrypted or removable, but that is not the case here -- C: is not encrypted, nor is it removable. I tried moving the contents of classic to c:\temp\classic and running it from there, but same result - get a very similar error message.

Can you help?

thanks!

-Frank.
