amplxe-sepreg.exe missing from VTune

When I try to use hardware event-based profiling in VTune (Profiler 2020), I get the error message

Cannot enable Hardware Event-based Sampling due to a problem with the driver (sep*/sepdrv*). Check that the driver is running and the driver group is in the current user group list. See the "Sampling Drivers" help topic for further details.

In the Sampling Drivers section of the use guide it says

Windows* targets: Verify the sampling driver is installed correctly. If required, install the driver.

then asks me to run amplxe-sepreg.exe. This is missing from the bin32 directory. I have reinstalled multiple times.


  • After uninstalling again and installing from the oneAPI package, it worked.
