CodeXL looks amazing. My excitement about leaving printf debugging behind is matched only by my disappointment that I can't get CodeXL debugging working


The sample teapot app is happily puffing plenty of steam when the app is started independently. However opening CodeXL, clicking the 'load the Teapot Sample' link, then 'Debug > Start Debugging' results in the teapot app launching then hanging with a status message "OpenCL-OpenGL sharing is inactive". The "Debugged process events" seems to be stuck building program 5 (see attached screenshot). The output, callstack, breakpoints and function call history panels are all empty.
