All worked like a charm in the 2020.3 version :-)

Hello,
Thanks for using Nsight Graphics and sorry you ran into this issue. We will get back to you on some suggestions for resolving your issue.

Hello,
I filed a bug for this issue and assigned to the engineering team to take up in a future release.
Thanks again.

Hi herverv –

Thanks for the bug report. I took at a look at the issue and I’m not able to reproduce so I’ll need a bit more information.

  • Can you double check that your current system configuration (e.g. Vulkan SDK and driver) works with Nsight 2020.3?
  • Does the Vulkan SDK’s vkcube.exe sample run with --validate work using Nsight 2020.4 for you? That’s a minimal example that’ll create an validation layer instance similar to yours.
  • Are you seeing the Nsight Crash Reporter on your crash? If so, please submit a crash report with a comment referencing this post. We’ll be able to debug a bit in that case.

Otherwise it sounds like something else might be going wrong here and we’ll need to dig a bit further.

Thanks!
