Thank you for the reply. I have tried the following set ups to make this work…
Target and Host:
Target - Windows 8 x64 (i7), Geforce 740M currently running driver version 326.41 as listed in the Nsight download page (I have also tried the latest drivers which made no difference).
Host - Windows 7 x64 (Xeon), Quadro FX 5800 currently running driver version 331.40 (driver listed on the Nsight download page does not install)
Both machines have Nsight version 184.108.40.20633 and VS2012 Ultimate version 11.0.60610.01 and .NET version 4.5.50709
I have attempted various applications in this set up, none of which would debug the shaders, but all of which would run and pause into frame capture with no issues.
I also attempted to reverse this set up and use OpenGL 3.3 and lower, but had the same results.
Target and Host:
Target - Same as above.
Host - Windows 7 x64 (i5), Geforce 480 GTX in SLI driver versions and software is the same as the target machine.
Same issues as before, reversing host also made no difference.
Local debugging also attempted with just the 740M card whilst using an OpenGL 4.2 application. The program would run fine and would also allow frame capture and pause, but no shader debug. I could go to the shader source via the API Inspector -> Program -> Source and add a breakpoint, but it would never actually hit.
Interestingly the 740M -> 5800FX OpenGL 3.3 program has provided me with a little more information. If attempting to place a breakpoint in the shader source the following error is displayed:
At embeddedSource_0.hlsl, line 21(‘main()’, line 4)
The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No source correspondence for breakpoint ID 0ed95ef…etc…
I am now attempting a final target/host setup between the 740M and a completelety clean (just Win7, VS 2012 and Nsight 3.1) 610GT based system using an OpenGL 4.2 based program to see if I can get this to work. I cannot really provide any of the code which I need to debug due to NDA arrangements, but at this point, not even the simplest freely available to download examples (such as the ogl-samples-220.127.116.11 pack) will debug for me.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
