Not sure why it wouldn't recognize the command!
did you install the SDK first
>C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0\Bin\wpt_x64.msi
yours is most likely wpt_x86.msi at the end
oh and it looks like for winxp you might need to manually copy files over http://blogs.msdn.com/b/pigscanfly/archive/2008/02/24/xperf-support-for-xp.aspx
>The next question is this "The xperf tool kit installer doesn't install the tools on XP or WS2003; how do I get the tools on those systems?" The answer is simple: From a Vista or WS2008 installation copy xperf.exe and perfctrl.dll to the target system. This is all xperf needs to support trace control.
Looks like you need to use something like this to get them from the MSI file: http://legroom.net/scripts/download.php?file=uniextract161
xperf.exe can be used on Windows XP SP2, and Windows Server 2003 for turning tracing on and of, and merge kernel trace data with user mode traces into a single ETL file. These operations are simply called "trace control". NOte that the '-stackwalk' switch is not supported on XP because its kernel doesn't support capturing the stack on events, this is anew feature in the Vista kernel.
might still be ok, since it doesn't look like that switch is used for getting the DPC data in the article.Edited by svyr - 3/7/11 at 12:17pm
