Call Graph : "Copying instrumented files failed. All files will be restored"
Has anyone come across the above error reported in a modal dialog box when trying to run a callgraph activity, or have ideas on how to troubleshoot it?
I am using Intel VTune Performance Analyzer 9.1 Build:210
The application being profiled is straight C++, compiled with Visual Studio 2005.
The main Output window reports no errors

I have tried this a few times going through various cleans and rebuilds of the modules being profiled, and having the application launched as an exe or via a script. Also, I have searched for processes holding locks on the source and targets of the copies in vtcopy.bat. If I do run vtcopy.bat by hand that appears to succeed. However I haven't figured out how to use this, as the checkbox "Copy and restore the files automatically" in the "Copy Instumented Modules Dialog Box" is greyed out (and checked).
Thanks. I've now been able to use vtcopy.bat by not having a launched executable associated with the activity (I'm sure this is documented somewhere that I missed). Still don't know why the copying reported an error but this is not an issue for me now.
