PerfKit on WIndows 8.x

I am trying to run PerfKit on Win8 systems however, when running NVInstEnabler, I do not end up with a tray icon in order to turn instrumentation on and off.

If I use v4.4.0 I am able to collect some metrics (none of the D3D_* ones) but only in realtime mode.

Any suggestions on how to get this working?


Hi MartynBliss,

More information need:

  • your Perfkit version?
  • your GPU and driver?
  • your OS, I mean you are on Win8.0 or Win8.1?

Are you launch NVInstEnabler with admin privilege? How do you get these counters’ value? Can you share your code with us?
