Where to Download WPF Performance Suite? (Perforator, Visual Profiler)


I was having trouble finding the WPF performance tools mentioned in this blog:

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/jgoldb/2008/09/26/updated-wpfperf-performance-profiling-tools-for-wpf/

I had to ask around, but here are the links to download the tools (Windows Performance Toolkit Setup):

https://download.microsoft.com/download/A/6/A/A6AC035D-DA3F-4F0C-ADA4-37C8E5D34E3D/setup/WinSDKPerformanceToolKit_amd64/wpt_x64.msi

After installing this one, also download and run the patch:

https://download.microsoft.com/download/1/8/9/189A7832-49D8-4978-85E8-3DFFF44E6C04/WpfPerf_timezone_patch.msp

When the patch installer prompts, choose “Repair”.

Then you can launch WPF Performance Suite (which has two tools: Perforator and Visual Profiler):

    This page is discussed here, see: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/21938968/how-do-you-install-the-wpf-performance-suite-in-windows-8-1/

    In a nutshell, there are two tricks to get everything working under Windows 10: (a) run the profile app before you run the target app, and (b) run the target app as “Adminstrator”.
