Omer, this is an excellent, data-rich posting. A few thoughts:
1) examine the release notes for the software you are working with. You must install it on supported, listed OS versions and CPUs, clearly outlined in the supported list there. By not doing this, you create a laboratory out of the installation, and anything is possible. Anything.
2) For more clues about your unsupported environment, run the VTune Quality Feedback Agent, which it sounds like you don't know about, yet. Default location:
By running that, you will create an ASCII text log file (easy to vi) that shows you every detail about your server and VTune installation, including the installation log itself (installation log shows all installation successes, failures, all user decisions, default choices, etc.) You could learn a lot by runningvtqfagent and reading the log.
3) If you chose to experiment by installing on a SUPPORTED OS/CPU combination, and you see the same problem with your extremely simple sample program, Intel Premier Support would *love* to hear about it. Those guys eat this stuff up for breakfast!
