Graphics monitor server crashed


Keep receiving this message 'Graphics monitor server crashed and successfully restarted. No additional actions required', and not able to start any applications or to attach anything.


I tried to update my graphics card driver, or reinstall GPA as described in this link: Graphics Monitor Server never successfully starts - Intel Community

but no luck unfortunately, any help or suggestions ?

Hi Oliverwang,


Thank you for your post!  I'm sorry that you have run into problems opening Graphics Monitor. That is understandably frustrating.

We have a workaround that should fix the issue you are encountering.

1) Please open a command prompt (may need to run as administrator)

2) Enter the following command:  cd "C:\Program Files\IntelSWTools\GPA\emon\bin64" to change the working directory

3) Then, execute the following command:

        C:\Program Files\IntelSWTools\GPA\emon\bin64> sepreg.exe -u pax 

4) Restart Graphics Monitor


After executing this command, hardware CPU metrics will be disabled in System Analyzer and Graphics Trace Analyzer. But all other graphics profiling will be unblocked.


We have a fix planned in the upcoming release GPA 2024.2 for this issue.

Thank you for replying so fast. Unfortunately,  the 'sepreg.exe' didn't work, reporting "This application can't run on your computer" after executing the command you provided. I'll wait for the upcomping 2024.2 release then.

You are welcome!

And I'm sorry that this workaround didn't work for you.

The new 2024.2 release just came out, and it should hopefully resolve the issue you had been experiencing.

Please let me know if you encounter any more issues when opening Graphics Monitor or attaching to applications.
