First, the installer should tell you, you need uninstall gdebugger & code analyst for it to work correctly.

While CodeAnalyst might be obvious, it still should check for them.

 

 

After installing to the default path, I try the sample programs to compile and I get:

 

1>------ Build started: Project: AMDTTeaPotLib, Configuration: Release Win32 ------

1>Error: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\AMD\CodeXL\Examples\Teapot\AMDTTeaPotLib\Release' is denied.

2>------ Build started: Project: AMDTTeaPot, Configuration: Release Win32 ------

2>Error: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\Extensions\AMD\CodeXL\Examples\Teapot\AMDTTeaPot\Release' is denied.

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 2 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

 

It should *not* be installing things into a protected directory!

 

I also assume that is the reason I can't do openGL GPU performance counters, I get a popup error.

This is on Vista 64bit.

 

CPU profiling seems to work fine.

 

Using version 1.1.2885.0

 

For the GPU, gdebugger did work fine before.
