You still must specify the application as a "Module of Interest" and you still must create the activity prior to launching the application. This is because the analyzer must instrument (i.e., insert calls to its data collection code) the binary, prior to it being loaded. So, after creating the activity with no app to launch and the app as the module of interest, it should prompt you to start the app. You then start the app on the Linux system. Once the app completes, the data collector should send the data back to the host and you can view the graph.
That's the way I think it should work! :smileyhappy: I haven't explicitly tried this very thing that you are trying. Please let us know if it works?!
