Issues installing and running AMD uProf

I am currently trying to install AMD uProf to profile an application on my new 3900x system (Windows 10, latest) and am having issues with it.


I used the Windows download from the bottom of this page: 


The installer stopped when trying to install "Microsoft Debuggers and Tools x64" and after it didn't work a couple of times (also tried using the installer directly in admin mode) I chose to ignore this and chose install anyways. I could finally finish the installation. I have the latest Miscrosoft VS Community Edition installed already - I am not sure if this caused this issue (devenv wasn't running when I installed).


I finally managed to start sampling an application, but uProf now crashes when the sampling is being stopped and the data is being processed.


I managed to profile another, smaller application, one of my tests, without problems.


The application crashing uProf is a heavily multithreaded server, which compiles and runs without issues. The data sampled was only from about a couple of seconds, in the kilobyte range.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks ~Chris



I looked at the Windows Event Viewer for the crash of uProf and got this data:
