    thanks. I discovered the tool last year in the RSS feed, but I was lost in the UI.

     

    I'll play with the tool a bit the next days

    for those of us that would like to try the tool... could you please make the "demo" driver tool (evntctrl.exe) available for download... thanks

    I wonder if this was the Intel driver for surface pros that had the very annoying "graphics driver has stopped responding" errors.

    Good to see this but lets say you have some sort of glitch that occurs only 1 time a week and you are using the computer in a daily live PA or studio workflow. To help professional users there it should be made so that if the audio glitches, Windows notices this and you don't have to try google how to solve it but rather add some button to Action Center allows the user to collect the trace if it's bothering them... this trace collection should be setup to be very light weight so that everything happens in memory with regard to the collection and there's a circular buffer that throws the data away until a glitch occurs again - collect what happened between the last non-glitch audio playback  and after the audio resumed and store that in memory. ... so it just records the info relevant to every the glitch in a way that does not cause disk or network io.

    Was Media Experience Ananlyzer removed? The download link is no longer working. Has this tool still a future or was it a one man show who has left the company?

    @Alois Kraus: Since we recorded this video, Media eXperience Analyzer got added to the Assessment and Deployment Kit. You can install it as part of that.

    @ChadBeeder: Ahh thanks. Good to know it is still around.

    On a related note the WPF Performance Suite is still around or do I need to use an ancient version from 10 year ago?
