Hi VTune gurus
As an average end-user of VTune (9.0 update 3) integrated within Visual Studio 2005, I face a small trouble with the location of the (large) sampling data which is by default located within the VTune subfolder of the VS2005 project. My source files and project settings are 'small' files that I keep on a fail-safe RAID1 hard drive synchronized accross distinct machines, and I do not like to pollute these master source dirs with large amount of volatile data I usually locate onto a separate RAID0 un-protected drive. I tried to assign the VTUNE_PROJECTS_DIR environment variable, but it gets ignored within the VS2005 environment, and I didn't find any way to redirect the sampling data somewhere else.
The suggestion is that it should be 'cheap' to check for the existing env variable and if it exists to take its value as an override to the default VS2005 poroject location.
Thanks for making this great utility available. Regards
