Yes it does, but adb executables not in the exe folder are not accessible to the  profiler. This is planned to be fixed in a  near future release.  Otherwise it works as normal.

Hi there, I am a developer for Gameloft, our studio is about to undertake multiple projects targeted at android devices. My job currently is to determine the viability of your tool in our pipeline for these projects. We really like the look of Adreno, but lack of windows 7 support is going to be a dealbreaker for us.


Any news regarding Adreno Profiler windows 7 support?


It is highly likely we will use at least the Adreno Profiler to aid in making these games provided it's supported on windows 7 before November rolls around.

Profiler has actually supported Windows 7 for quite some time now.

Hi there. I have used adreno profiler for a long time and all was fine. But now, when installed 3.1.4759 version, i can't more see the captured GL 2.0 frames.

When i press the "Capture Frame" button, all works fine except displaying image of captured frame. Frame view is still black and none display option affect it.

I can see textures in a "Mipmaps View", i can see render calls list, i can see shaders, but i can't see the image of captured frame.

The question is: what may cause the profiler can't display captured frames?

I use Win 7 SP1 Ultimate with all needed development tools, all my software environment always up to date.

Hi Dave,

The Adreno Profiler says that it supports Mobility Radeon™ HD 3650 and above series. I have Mobility Radeon™ HD 5470 on my laptop. I have also downloaded the latest AMD driver catalyst from the site. Yet I am unable to connect the Adreno Profiler to any android device. What can be the issue?
