I have another topic open, but I am running into a completely different issue so I am starting a new topic.
I am installing GPA on my development PC (Windows 7 64 bit, MS security essentials as virus scanner) and am running a few issues that I think are related. I am running with CUA turned on.
During setup, the installer complains that it can not connect to my z: drive. The Z drive is a network share that I have linked to "My Documents". It seems it is trying to access the z: drive when running as admin. Mapping the drive manually from a command prompt in administrator mode resolves this.
I can launch the GPA and see the HUD, but when I do a capture for a frame, the data is saved to a folder on the aforementioned z drive. I would like to make this a different folder, but I see no way to do this.
When saving the data is successful, I can not open the captured data in the frame analyzer. I got an error that the file format is invalid.
I have reinstalled a number of times, where I have tried various ways to stop GPA using my Z drive, as I suspect that is the root cause of the problem. This failed. I reverted some windows settings to use z: as my documents folder, but that did not help.
Depending on how I setup the z drive during install, I get my application to freeze when capturing frames, the gpa monitor crashing on startup, or I get output that is not accepted by the frame analyzer.
Is there a reccomended procedure for installing the GPA on a PC in a windows domain?
Or how can I stop it from using a networked drive?
Thanks in advance,
Also, enabling UAC does not have any impact on this issue. So you have two options:
- Start from scratch by creating a new user on your machine with 'My Documents' on the C: drive, then install the product.
- Uninstall Intel GPA, then reset your system to ensure 'My Documents' is located on the C: drive (along with all registry keys and other system files that refer to your home directory), then reinstall the product and try again.
