    its not a problem with the software, its a problem with the installation of the driver, your programdata\nvidia corporation\drs folder is not readable, not writeable, or missing the files that should be inside.

    Does it show technical information on the crash?

    Thank you. It does not crash. It's not running at all. In other words I get a very brief spinning sand timer and that's about it. I can't find anything in task manager either.

    I guess that one option is to do a clean reinstall of Nvidia drivers using DDU. The last couple of Nvidia driver updates were done directly from the Nvidia experience application. I'll double check the folders read/write permissions.

    Have you browsed event viewer or reliability monitor?

    I did not use event viewer. I never used it before. Anything in particular I should be looking for? Thank you.

    Right click on Start menu button (in task bar), select "Event Viewer" in popped up context menu. In Event Viewer expand tree node "Windows Logs" and select its child node "Application". On right pane you will see events of that "Application" log. To not search for events related to profile inspector, clear the log (right click on the "Application" node, select "Clear Log..." in context menu, click button "Clear" in pop-up dialog). Now with clean "Application" log launch profile inspector, witness the default faulty behaviour, return to Event Viewer window, press "F5" to refresh the list of events and see whether there are error events related to profile inspector.

    For reliability monitor execute command "perfmon /rel". You will see window like that

    If you will see red icons with errors linked to profile inspector (click in icon to see the details), click "Save reliability history..." link in lower left corner, save it into xml-file, upload the file somewhere and post the link here.

    I have the same issue but every time I change permissions or remove the read only properties; it reverts back to being read only. Do you have any tips to fix this issue?
    It was working for me before but I tried to import an SLI profile which caused an unhandle exception. After the program closed it would not run again even after reinstalling drivers and NPI.

    the read only flag on folders is never applied to folders, only the files within.
