Trying to install CodeAnalyst totally locked up windows 8 to the point where I had to restore a previously save image.
Is there a known compatibility problem with either windows 8 or visual studio 2010?
CodeAnalyst (3.8)Installation has *NO* known issues with Windows8 or VS2010.
Can you provide us with more information like:
- Did CodeAnalyst Installation result in BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death)
- What is the version of CodeAnalyst you are using
- Win8 OS version you are using (9200??)
- What is the Processor you are running CodeAnalyst on
- Bitness of your Win8 OS (32 or 64)
- Were you upgrading CodeAnalyst from 3.7 to 3.8?
Thankyou for your reply.
The CodeAnalyst installation resulted in a totally unresponsive W8 system.
No mouse or keyboard response and no disk activity. I let it sit like this for more than 1/2 hour.
I am trying to install CodeAnalyst_Public_3.8.1203.1066_x64.exe on a
Gigabyte P67x_UD3_B3 motherboard with a Core I7 2600K and 16 GB memory.
It is running a fresh install of W8 Pro 64bit retail version which is fully patched.
Visual Studio version is VS2010 10.0.40219.1 SP1 also fully patched.
AMD CodeAnalyst profiling driver and its features are tightly bound with the processor installed.
You are trying to install AMD CodeAnalyst on Win8 running on Intel processor.
This can be potential reason for the hang.
CodeAnalyst ran just fine on the same configuration under Windows 7.
With Win7, You will be able to run time based profiling on Intel processor.
However, Microsoft has changed lot of OS internal stuff starting from Win8.
That's the reason for the BSOD/hang that you are observing on Win8 OS.
Thankyou kalyanpk for your time.
