Broken links. No clue how to get to batch files referenced. 2008 R2?...where? Looks like the folks who built Windows 8 broke their teeth on this travesty.

Tried to use this tool a year or two ago. MS Engineer was on-site and recommended this tool. Have battled everything under the sun to get this tool to work with no success with perfmon output and no success with profiler trace files. Neither can be imported, and after many hours wasted, plan to waste no additional time. Sad, because it looks so promising.

I have a problem with bottlenext analysis. It shows other and when I drill down does not provide any details. I see that it is mentioned in the release that it is fixed but I still see this issue.

I have all prereqs installed...and attempted to run sqlnexus.exe on multiple different clients/servers... All get this error when launching: "The trust relationship between the primary domain and the trusted domain failed" at System.Security.Principal.NTAccount.TranslateToSids( ... NexusInterfaces.Util.GetFileSecurity(). Tried running with an admin windows domain acct and local admin acct.

Unable to import TRC files, gives cannot find the file specified even if TRC files exists. No realtime data, gives exceptions, I cannot see this product is any help in troubleshooting performance issues, anyways, it has not been a great help for me.

Bottleneck Analysis report heading says SQL Server 2005. Also, the Drill-down to 'Other' has no wait details. Realtime Server Status generates errors and does not render the report. SQL 2005 Perf Stats renders 2008 report. Query Hash report - cpu and logical reads drill-down throws exception (missing table and Data source)
