    Nvidia Profile Inspector is now a separate exe.

    Obsolete Profile Inspector jump list entry removed per the changelog:

    Obsolete? Why would making it easier to use the Profile inspector be 'obsolete'. Now you have to add manually.

    Obsolete because profile editor now a separate exe. Jump list shortcut was in 1.9.7.4 but did nothing so removed. Why such big deal?

    You mean except for it working to open the profiler? Who are you?
    Anyhow just for giggles, I down loaded the .4 version and it also crashes when refreshing.

    It did not work in 1.9.7.4, so it was removed in 1.9.7.5.

    Why split the program into too separate apps, older version was far better than this, what is the benefit from having them separate?

    By 1.9.x I had to open main pinned nvinspector exe shortcut, then close it and then those right-click tasks apeared. Have you tried this approach with latest 2.1.x?

    Yeah, the release notes say it was removed. I don't see how being 'open source' would be the reason for doing this. The latest version of ProfileInspector. 2.1.1.3, still crashes on refresh.
