Using Profiles Created with Earlier Versions of the Tool
Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers inherits profiles created with the latest previously-installed version of the product.
Suppose you installed Intel® GPA packages one by one in the following order:
Intel® GPA 4.3.1 > Intel® GPA 4.3 > Intel® GPA 4.3.3.
In this case, Intel® GPA 4.3.3 will contain:
- profiles created with Intel® GPA 4.3
- profiles created with Intel® GPA 4.3.1 and imported by Intel® GPA 4.3
All profiles created with the previously-installed version are listed in the Analyze Application dialog box > Active Profile drop-down list and in the Profiles dialog box > Profiles field.
For you to track to which applications those profiles belonged, Intel GPA adds the application name to the corresponding profile. For example, the profile name SampleProfile(gpasample.exe) means that the profile was created with the latest previously-installed version of Intel GPA and was assigned to the application gpasample.exe.
All custom settings are inherited except for cases when Intel GPA components (metrics, domains, keyboard shortcuts, etc) were modified as compared with the previous versions of the tool. For example, if in the latest previously-installed tool versions you changed the Frame Capture keyboard shortcut from default Ctrl+Shift+C to Alt+C, and in Intel GPA Frame Capture was renamed to Create Frame Capture File, your custom settings will be lost.
