I can confirm the same issue here:

May be somebody from intel could shed some light here?
Windows 10 Anniversary Edition is going to be supported in Intel(R) VTuneTM Amplifier XE 2017 release, which is coming soon.
2016 update 4 version can still be used for event-based sampling without collecting call stacks though.
Unfortunately, still the exact same problem with VTune 2017 final. The software says something about enabling vPMU in the hypervisor and to look at the help, but searching the help file for vPMU yields no result. EBS does not seems to be working?
Please follow the help article below to disable the Hyper-V to allow EBS analysis on Windows based system. Make sure to reboot the machine.
I have the same problem with VTune 2016 Update 4 and Windows 10
VTune 2016 Update 2 worked really well about 1/2 years ago, but started to crash system into driver-related BSOD after recent Win10 update when trying to run app in advanced hotspot mode with enabled call stack information collection. Once I updated Vtune to 2016 Update 4, it started to report instead that it can't enable advanced capabilities because "problem with the driver (vtss/vtsspp).
Running "amplxe-sepreg.exe -i" report that it fails to install VTSS++ driver without any additional information (see attached)
Virtualization is disabled in Windows settings (see attached) and BIOS (I disabled both Virtualization and VT for direct I/O; both were active but never caused any problems before).
Any ideas on what could I do next? VTune used to be a brilliant tool when we purchased a licence, but hotspot analysis without call stack heavily reduces its usefulness.
Windows 10 enterprise x64, build 1607 (14393.953), Intel i7-4790 CPU, Dell Optiplex 9020
EDIT: I tried trial version of VTune 2017 Update 3 and it works without any issues. Can you confirm, please, that VTune 2016U4 is not fully compatible with newly updated Windows 10 and the only way to make VTune fully functional again is to purchase VTune 2017?
I'm still looking for an answer on VTune 2016 / Win10 compatibility and it's somewhat annoying to see no reply for a paid product support request in 3 weeks
With best regards,
