"Check %programfiles%\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin for wpt_*.msi. Then run the appropriate installer for the WPT."
Yeah I installed Windows 7 SDK ( link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=71DEB800-C591-4F97-A900-BEA146E4FAE1&displaylang=en , and I downloaded GRMSDK_EN_DVD.iso )
and installed "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\wpt_x86.msi" on my Windows XP SP3 machine, but there's only "WPF Performance Suite" installed.
The installed files that I could found were:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\WPF Performance Suite\WpfPerf.exe
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\WPF Performance Suite\WpfPerf_managed.exe
[DLLs] - Path is same as above executables - "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\WPF Performance Suite"
Please let me know, why "XPerf" is missing from this SDK (is that my mistake?).
I even searched whole my hard disk but it didn't exist(xperf.exe, xperfview.exe).
AND one more thing!
I found "xperfview.exe" in the Windows Logo Kit Controller installed machine(Windows Server 2003 R2) and ran it, but nothing happened.
I copied the whole folder to Windows XP SP3 and ran it again but nothing happened, too.
Are there conditions to run it?

After installing the Win7 SDK on D:\ drive, I can find them here:
d:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\wpt_ia64.msi < for Itanium CPU
d:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\wpt_x64.msi < for 64 bit OS
d:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\wpt_x86.msi < for 32 bit OS
Pick the one for your OS/machine combination and install it.
After you install it, you can find xperf.exe here:
D:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\xperf.exe
D:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\xperfview.exe
I installed the wpt_x64.msi, since I have Win7 64 bit as my OS.
Hope this helps
Can anybody actually find an answer to the OP problem?
I'm having the same problem on a "supported platform"
The WPT_x86.msi installs to ...Program files/Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit\WPF Performance Suite
It DOES NOT install anything to the ..Program Files\Microsoft Windows Performance Toolkit
folder other than the afore mentioned folder.
* EULA.Microsoft.Windows.Performance.Toolkit.rtf * GPUView * HeapAction_CullFunctionsExample.txt * KernelTraceControl.dll * KernelTraceControl.h * README.txt * WPF Performance Suite * WaitClassification_ImportantThreadStartFunctions.t xt * WaitClassification_WatchFunctions.txt * WaitClassification_WatchLocks.txt * WindowsPerformanceToolkit.chm * dbghelp.dll * hwpower2etw.exe * hwpower2etw.ini * perf_heap.dll * perf_nt.dll * perf_nt_c.dll * perf_nt_g.dll * perf_onoff.dll * perf_onoff_c.dll * perf_onoff_g.dll * perf_tdh.dll * perfcore.dll * perfcore.ini * perfctrl.dll * perfg.dll * symsrv.dll * xbootmgr.exe * xbootmgr.log * xbootmgrSleep.exe * xperf.exe * xperfview.exe ../GPUView: * EventsForStackTrace.txt * GPUview.chm * log.cmd * GPUView.docx * README.txt * GPUView.exe * SymbolSearchPath.txt tplugins * AEplugin.dll * DxPlugin.dll * FWplugin.dll * MFplugin.dll * DWMplugin.dll * Dxgkplugin.dll * KMFDplugin.dll * NTplugin.dll ../GPUView/tplugins: * CoreTplugin.dll * ../GPUView/plugins
are all missing from the install.
I have verified this by installing the whole SDK suite first, by installing only the WPT, by extracting the WPT from the iso and by installing the Development tools via a web installer.
Does anybody have an answer or even an older version of xperf or the SDK that does have these needed files?
That's not right.
offer #1. You CAN use XPERF from within WinXP if you'd just copy the files from your installation on a Vista (or norther) windows.
Take a look here
offer #2. There's another trick to manipulate the installation and get xperf files. The idea is to mount the
'Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4' (ISO)
(download the iso http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=35aeda01-421d-4ba5-b44b-543dc8c33a20)
and extract the files out of it. That guy did it .
