Using WPR and WPA on Windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I found the WPR and WPA executables on my Win 8 Developer Preview box and copied that folder to my Win 7 machine.  WPA appears to run as expected, but WPR I cannot see the UI, only command line.  I get the same behavior on my Win 8 box.  Michael?  Other MS guys?  Can I use WPR.exe on a win 7 box with the UI?

  • Hi,

    for WPT v5 / v6 we got a new forum:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wptkv5/threads

    But just a short hint for you:
    Did you expand the windows folder view to see all extensions etc. ?
    Just to make sure that you select all (incl. hidden / system) files for copy.

    And did you try to reinstall the WPR / WPT v6 for current ADK preview ?

    Best regards

  • I will try those.  Is there a separate place to download the ADK so I can install it on my Win 7 machine instead of copying the folder?

  • Hi,

    we open a new thread with the current link to the ADK preview:

  • That new thread still doesn't have a link to the ADK separate from a Windows 8 installation.  I want to install just the ADK on Windows 7 because I want access to the new WPR and WPA tools.  I have a Win 8 machine but that's for separate investigations with Metro etc.  I need to use the new WPR and WPA for performance analysis on a current product.

     

    i'll close this thread and continue it in the other forum

     

    thanks

  • Hi Dave,

    I use the WPT 6.2 with the Windows 8 ADK preview under Windows 7 and 2008 Server as well :).
