Visual Studio 2017 Graphics Debugger - No such interface supported


So i have a new set up of windows 10 Home Edition on my PC and installed VS 2017 Community Edition. When i build and run the app it runes absolutely fine. But if i use the graphics debugger i get the app open and i print screen to snapshot a frame. The window opens and it shows the following

enter image description here

If i choose to open that frame then i get the following error - An error occurred. Playback of your application may be incomplete(HRESULT = 0x80004002) "No such interface supported" enter image description here

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be as it worked fine on my laptop and for the record. Opening a brand new Directx12 app project with the spinning cube also does this.

Please have a look for the question at here. I suppose you are using Windows version 1809 or higher. Graphics Debugging Tool does no longer support DirectX12 after 1809. Instead, you should use the PIX for Windows in future.
