[SOLVED] Tachyon tutorial project file conversion errors when using Visual C++ 2010 Express (corrupted file issues)

Hello everyone,

I am attempting to follow the vTune tutorials using the evaluation version of vTune Amplifier XE 2011 in conjunction with Visual C++ 2010 Express. I am stuck at the point when I open the tachyon_vtune_amp_xe.sln file in Visual Studio. The VS tool tells me that the file needs conversion. I accept and tell the conversion assistant to proceed. It then reports conversion errors. It seems that some errors are normal (the UAC ones, cf this link) but the problem is that I have much more errors, some about file corruption issues.

I have retried several times, unzipping the tachyon_vtune_amp_xe.zip from the sample\\ directory into a different place each time but this yields to the same results. Due to these errors, I am unable to proceed (VS marks the solutions as being not available).

I have the XML report of the conversion tool available as well as a screenshot at the time of the error but I cannot find a way to attach them here...

Is there anything I can do to work around this issue? I have been unable to find a previous version of VS Express...

Thanks for your insight.

Cheers,

Vincent

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for the quick reply! That explains it. I'll have a more in-depth look at the release notes then.

HiVincent,
You may want to try VTune Amplifier XE in a standalone GUI mode. It works fine without intagration into Visual Studio.

Hi Vladimir,

Thanks for your suggestion. As I said, I was following the Tachyon tutorial which makes use of the VS integration. I have managed to find a VS2008 at work with which I am able to build and run the project following the tutorial instructions. Unfortunately, the application crashes when run under vTune (I have a console message about the fact that the parser returned a non-zero exit code when working on ball.dat). A short while after the popup appears, I get a crash dialog for the find_hotspot application. I have yet to investigate more here.

Cheers,

Vincent

Thanks Vincent for noticing this bug with sample analysing. We reproduced it and submitted a bug tracker.

BTW, you can use the command
find_hotspots.exe ..\..\dat\balls.dat
as a workaround. The executable just needs a correct path to the dat file.
Was that crash dialog generated by VTune Amplifier XE? Did you send it to Intel?
