Boot action failed: SMSS process not found RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When I try to use the MS performance tools Xperf to analyse my system(Win7 RTM, Ultimate), I encounter a issue. my process as follow:
    I open the command line with "Run as administrator" run the xperf under c:\sample\

    C:\sample>xbootmgr -trace boot

    it system will reboot, after I login, it will countdown 2 minute. after that. I reopen the command line with "Run as administrator", and found there is some files under c:\sample\

    I run the command as follow:
    C:\sample>xperf -i boot_BASE+CSWITCH_1.etl -o boot.xml -a boot
    [1/2]      100.0%
    [2/2]      100.0%
    Execute: boot  [0x80004005]

    when I open the boot.xml, there is just only sentence as follow:

    Boot action failed: SMSS process not found.

    I already test in two different NB (Win7), Both are same issue

    What's the happen, and how to resolve this? Thanks a lot!

    P.S My Performance Analyzer version number is: 4.1.6512
