An error when building

Hi all,

I am trying to build a sample code in VS 2005 in my laptop which doesn't have a CUDA-enabled graphics card. I got an error saying that  ($CUDA_PATH)nvcc.exe is not a valid Win32 application. I know I cannot run it on my laptop. But I am wondering what exactly does the error mean? Has the code been compiled? BTW, the $CUDA_PATH is showing the correct path of nvcc.exe.
