Windows Kernel profiling and symbols

Jump to solution
Hi,
I'd like to profile my Windows Kernel module at customer site, however sending the symbol file (.pdb) to the customer can't be done (security issues).
Customer is using the command line to run the profiler and since he doesn't have the symbol file he cant use the '--search-dir sym=' parameter. Once profiling has finished, the customer sends the results to me.
The question is - How can I open the result file on my machine and use the symbol file? (It seems that VTune don't know how to search for the symbols).
Thanks in advance,
Shahar.

You should be able redo the symbol resolution by finalizing the result again (and specifying the symbol file path)
From the command line, 'amplxe-cl -finalize -r -search-dir sym='

From the GUI, look at the 'Analysis Type' tab. Use the 'Project Properties' button to add search directories, and then use the 'Re-resolve' button.

Hi Mark,
Thank you for your excellent and fast reply. The command line option worked perfectly. The GUI didn't since I don't have a project opened so the 'Project Properties' button can't be used.
Anyway the command line is more than enough - Thanks again.
Shahar.
