Doonga - did you enable "Auto-detect Launched Applications" in Graphics Monitor settings?

Have you tried the steps in the docs? There are a few different things you can try. Detailed steps are here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/documentation/gpa-user-guide/top/launch-application-...

 

One of the things you can try is dictate which applications GPA will/will not connect to:

Attach to Specific Processes
 
Once you enable the Auto-detect Launched Applications option, Intel GPA connects to all the processes that use graphics APIs (DirectX*, Vulkan*), including web browsers and non-game applications. To change this, specify the applications that you want/do not want to profile with Intel GPA, once you start them:

 

  • Turn off Automatic detection using Graphics Monitor.
  • Go to the Intel GPA installation directory. By default, it is C:\Program Files\IntelSWTools\GPA.
  • Add the application names you want to analyze to the InjectionList.txt file or add the application you do not want to analyze to InjectionSkipList.txt. When specifying file names, use the wildcard "*" to replace 0 or more characters, and skip the .exe extension. Example: "my*game", "basichlsl*".
  • Save the files.
  • In the Graphics Monitor Settings dialog box, turn on Auto-detect Launched Application.

    As a result, whenever your application listed in InjectionList.txt starts, Intel GPA gets attached to that process and the HUD is enabled. The tool automatically displays metrics as an overlay on the application window. Applications listed in the 
    InjectionSkipList.txt are not attached to Intel GPA.
    If the InjectionList.txt file contains at least one item, the 
    InjectionSkipList.txt file and all other running applications are ignored.
     

    Let me know what you find.
