I’ve been using Nsight successfully for a while, and after the 3.2.1 update dropped, I upgraded my computer from Windows 8 to 8.1. After doing so, Nsight no longer functions correctly. When launching from Visual Studio via ‘Start Graphics Debugging’ the app will run fine, but the Nsight HUD overlay does not show up at all. When I launch the app via ‘Start Performance Analysis’, it will appear to function OK, but the end result will be that it will report that 0 samples were collected. I hammered on this for a while, to no avail. I even did a fresh install of Windows 8, verified that Nsight worked fine, upgraded to 8.1, and saw the exact same thing happen again. I made sure that I did a clean install of the latest drivers. Any ideas what may be causing this? Thanks!
My system specs are as follows:
Intel i7 2600K processor
NVidia 560 Ti
16 GB RAM
Visual Studio 2012
