    Unable to analyze compute shader in PerfStudio 2.2


      I have the following configuration


      Driver version 8.753.0.0

      I have a compute shader and followed the instructions on another thread to add the present call to trigger perf studio.

      It launches the app and prints following message in the perf studio terminal


      Message: Server        : GPU PerfStudio Server - Version V2.2.791.0

      but it then waits there for a while and then reports an error saying

      "ConnectionManager The operation has timed out

      Check to see if the application is running."

      I get the same error message without these two lines of code too.







      IDXGISwapChain* chain = DXUTGetDXGISwapChain();

          ComputeShaderSort11.exe is a DX11 compute shader example that does a computation once then exits.

          It has no render loop and will not work with PerfStudio.

          You will have to add a loop to the application so that it does the computation and calls present within each loop. PerfStudio relies on the application running continually so that it can debug and profile the application.

              Thanks. When I try to create a Dx11 device wth swap chain, D3D11CreateDeviceAndSwapChain fails.


              What should I set my DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC to ? I am setting DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC as follows 

              void SetSwapChainDesc( DXGI_SWAP_CHAIN_DESC &swapChainDesc ) { ZeroMemory(&swapChainDesc, sizeof(swapChainDesc)); set buffer dimensions and format swapChainDesc.BufferCount = 2; swapChainDesc.BufferDesc.Width = 1; swapChainDesc.BufferDesc.Height = 1; swapChainDesc.BufferUsage = /*DXGI_USAGE_RENDER_TARGET_OUTPUT*/DXGI_USAGE_UNORDERED_ACCESS; swapChainDesc.BufferDesc.Format = /*DXGI_FORMAT_R8G8B8A8_UNORM*/DXGI_FORMAT_UNKNOWN; //set refresh rate swapChainDesc.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Numerator = 60; swapChainDesc.BufferDesc.RefreshRate.Denominator = 1; //sampling settings swapChainDesc.SampleDesc.Quality = 0; swapChainDesc.SampleDesc.Count = 1; //output window handle swapChainDesc.OutputWindow = NULL; swapChainDesc.Windowed = false; }
