  • You need to add the user who will be using the tool to the Performance Log Users group.

    You mentioned that you are on XP, in MSDN it mentions the following on enabling event recording: "To enable event recording in the StreamInsight Event Flow Debugger on Windows Vista and higher, add the current user to the Performance Log Users group."

  • See this thread: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/16819d95-0777-4031-aeaa-31a29ce6992b/streaminsight-development-on-windows-xp?forum=streaminsight.

    And why on earth are you using Windows XP? You do understand that Microsoft will no longer support XP as of the end of this year, right?

  • Unfortunately our bank is still in the process of upgrading to Windows 7.

    Note that you can use the Event Flow Debugger on Windows XP/2003 to inspect diagnostic views after connecting to a StreamInsight server and to display the query plan.

    From that thread i take it that event flow debugger open trace file wouldn't work on Xp. It only supports connecting to server.

  • That is what it would appear, yes.

    My guess ... and this is a hypothesis at best ... is that there is certain ETW functionality that is needed to open trace files that isn't supported on Windows XP - and the trace files are created with ETW. And there is no way that this is ever going to be added.
