No installation is required. Just ensure “Instrumentation” is ENABLED from your NvPerfKit. MD5 checksum will follow. Use a virus scanner, if you don’t trust this site.

- This code is really only for Windows 7 x64, it won’t run on anything else. There are working monitor tools available for other Windows versions, use them.
- If feedback reflects a demand for other platforms, I’ll rethink the build process.
