Using Nsight with Xbox App games?


I have started to experience really weird issues with Forza Horizon 5 where the GPU usage drops from 90% to the single digits and never properly recovers. After contacting the developers I was asked to record a GPU Trace and send them the files so they can see what is happening.
However, because it is an Xbox app game I simply get the following error trying to select the executable:

You don’t have permission to open this file.

Contact the file owner or an administrator to obtain permission"

Anyone have any idea how to circumvent this problem?

Thank you for attempting to use Nsight Graphics. I’m sorry you ran into this issue. Are you saying you have problems trying to launch the Forza Horizon 5 application when attaching to GPU Trace in Nsight Graphics?

Yeah. I followed a guide online that told me to launch Nsight > click connect > and select the application executable

That’s where I got the error message, when I selected the executable. Closing out of that dialog box just puts me back to the previous screen and the application executable field is still empty.
