Download Windows ADK 8.1 http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=39982

Uncheck everything except Windows Performance Toolkit when installing.

Navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Windows Performance Toolkit\gpuview

Replace log.cmd with the contents from here: http://pastebin.com/jEWDMbhz

(This just adds the TRACE_VR lines with the guid we use for tracking events in SteamVR).

Open a command prompt at this location with Admin privileges.

Run 'log' to start capturing.

Wait maybe a second once it gets through loading things (the captured data size adds up fast!).

Then run 'log' again to stop capturing (followed by a rather lengthy merge process).

Run 'gpuview' and select merged.etl to view.
