Visual Studio: Performance Tools

After trying get Visual Studio 2008's performance tools to work, it kept reporting that the file, "VSPerfDrv90 is not installed" I finally found a solution. It turns out on the DVD there's a seperate installer called, "vs_profiler.exe". Installing this resolves the problem(s).

From the [root] start of the DVD, there's a folder called, "Standalone Profiler" then choose your, "x64" or "x86" directory according to your machine. Inside there you will find the, "vs_profiler.exe".
