The Show Again Flags dialog is used to specify whether AQTime should display definite warnings, dialogs and panels. To call the dialog, select Options > Options from AQTime’s main menu and then choose General > Show Again Flags from the tree on the left of the subsequent Options dialog.select Tools > Options from the main menu of Visual Studio and then choose AQTime > General > Show Again Flags from the tree on the left of the subsequent Options dialog.select AQTime > Options from the main menu of Embarcadero RAD Studio and then choose General > Show Again Flags from the tree on the left of the subsequent Options dialog.

The following options are available:

  • System
    • Always convert mapped drive paths - The executable added to an AQTime project can be located on a mapped drive. However, to perform profiling, AQTime needs to know the real path to a module, so when you add a module to AQTime, it converts the mapped path to the real path and works with modules using the real path. According to this option, AQTime may or may not notify you about this conversion.

    • Ask to reload modified file in the Editor - If you are viewing a source file in AQTime's Editor and that file was modified, AQTime may ask your permission to reload the file. If this option is on, AQTime will always ask you about it. Else, it will reload the file automatically.

    • Check for updates at startup - If this option is enabled, every time you start AQTime, it checks to see if you are using the latest available product version and if you are not, it offers you a chance to download the latest from SmartBear’s Web site. See Checking for Updates for more information.

    • Confirm the IIS restart - If this option is on, AQTime will ask for your confirmation to restart the Internet Information Services (this may be needed for profiling IIS and ASP.NET applications). If this option is off, AQTime will restart IIS automatically.

    • Override Current View dialog - Specifies whether AQTime warns you every time you start modifying the Current View. See Result Views.

    • Show Set Search Path dialog - This option effects AQTime if it is integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio or Embarcadero RAD Studio. When you select a routine in a panel (for instance, in the Report, Details or Setup), AQTime updates other panels so that they display information relevant to the routine. It also updates the Editor panel to display the routine’s source code. If the routine’s source file is not found and if the option is enabled, AQTime displays a message informing you about the problem and asks whether you want to specify the search path. If the option is disabled, AQTime does not display any notification messages.

    • Show SpeedStep warning - Some processors support the SpeedStep technology. These processors can change the CPU frequency mode dynamically. When you start the Performance profiler or the Function Trace profiler, AQTime checks whether the processor supports the SpeedStep technology and if it does, AQTime displays a message asking you to disable the dynamic CPU frequency mode. Using this option, you can specify whether AQTime will show the message.

    • Show Unavailable Modules warning - Specifies whether AQTime displays a warning message when it cannot read debug information from a project's module being added or reloaded.

    • Warn about using a counter other than Elapsed Time - Specifies whether AQTime will warn you that using counters other than Elapsed Time on some Windows versions may cause a crash. See the Counters Limitations section of the Counters Overview topic for more information about this issue and possible workarounds.

    • Warn if source files are not found - If this option is enabled, AQTime displays a warning messages when you start profiling the application with the Unused VCL Units profiler and AQTime fails to find some source files of the profiled application.
