Deployment Management


Reproduction steps:

2. Change Win32WinodwHost Path (Unity3DInWPFDemo solution Shell.xaml) to where Buildprofiler.exe exists in the computer
3. Open Task Manager
4. Run the project in the Visual Studio
5. Note the GPU and CPU usage of 'Framework (32 bit)' - CPU 1.5% and GPU 2%
6. Click "Show/Hide" in the CAD Framework

Actual: GPU usage rises to 47% and CPU to 26%
