VS2015 RC version

Using the profiler, when profiling an "Empty sample application" from VS2015 RC, the profiler only shows 0.00ms in the time profiler, even though it took more to actually run.

See the attached screenshot, and VS version,

Yes, we retrieve timing information from sampling, which currently doesn't work on Android. But a fix is coming pretty soon, so should be available in the alpha/beta channels in the next few weeks.

We are tracking that in another bug, so closing this one. Please pay attention to the profiler's release notes, which will include information on when that's fixed. So, when that happens, feel free to re-open this if it doesn't work.

Are there any updates on this, or a link to the other ticket you speak of that is tracking this issue?
