    Does Performance Recorder work in 8.1?


    I am trying to analyse boot performance using this tool on 8.1 Pro.

    Windows Performance Analyzer

    I have already updated to the latest version of ADK but after rebooting it fails. I have Windows 6.3.9600 Build 9600 and Performance Recorder version 6.3.9600.16384(winblue_rtm.130821-1623) which I downloaded yesterday from MS.

    Can anyone run this on 8.1 or do I have some incorrect version?

    Not sure - the change icon was greyed out so I'm downloading the whole lot again. I have 8.1.Upddate (or 8.1.1 or whatever you want to call it).

    We will see but the link looks good.

    I wish the installer took care of your Windows version as I thought I installed the latest last week.

    I appreciate your input - I had almost given up on it really but I would like to run a trace of boot as mine has got slower for no obvious reason.

    Will be tomorrow - still on 23% downloaded after 30 minutes (and I only wanted PE and performance toolkit). It is terribly slow.

    I will let you know though and thanks.

    One day. I doubt I'd understand the output even if it worked anyway.

    Thanks anyway. I'll plug away at it slowly.

    I'm trying it now, starting here: Download Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) for Windows 8.1 Update from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Edit: First it downloads (acquires) WinPE which takes a while.

    Works fine for me. Installed, ran recorder then analyzer and got nice graphs. Really neat tool.

    Edit#2: Can the recorder run over a boot? That would be sweet. Guess I'll try it.
