What's the OS used?
When the standalone CodeAnalyst is launched, if you leave the "Launch" field blank and start "time-based profile", does the problem still happens?
thanks for the answer. I'm using windows7. Well then it starts but does it observe my program automatically if I'm running my program during the profiling or do I need to do mor settings?
If you don't specify an application to launch, CodeAnalyst will automatically do a system-wide profile. You will however, need to add a duration of the profile. You can stop the profiling manually when your application is finished.
If you are having trouble launching your application with CodeAnalyst, do you have the correct working directory for your application? Did you correctly specify any needed command line parameters? Do you have correct permissions to launch the application?
