Hi, I'm trying to get the Frame Profiler running with my new card but I have not luck.

I want to profile our custom game engine to get more performance out of AMD cards.


Every time I try to open the Frame Profiler with any OpenGL program I get:

Error: Unable to enable selected counters: failed


If I try the Frame Debugger I get this warning:

The GPU timing information for the draw calls in this frame cannot be found. The GPU timings displayed will be incorrect, and profiling of draw calls has been disabled.


With the Forward Plus DX11 demo by AMD I get:

Error: Unable to enable selected counters: Hardware not supported


Is it really necessary to update to a new version of GPU PerfStudio or do I have to use different options?

Our engine is based on the C4 Engine version 4.5 by Terathon. I really need some help to speed up our game on AMD cards.


Thanks in advance.
