Greetings to all,
I have been trying this CUDA thing out for the longest time now and still cannot seem to yield any type of results. I simply can not set this stuff up, I can not find any simple instruction that details how to get all the parts to work together to run a simple program. I read the release notes and it says to build a solution, I built the solution, what am I supposed to do after that?(By the way I seem to get errors,Why am I building a solution to use to make a program? shouldn’t I been using the cuda.h library file(that’s confusing)) I installed all drivers and SDK files, everything is on my system but why can I not figure this out, when I start coding in VS2010 I get a million squiggly kines under everything (global is one of them)(cudaMemcpy as well) y is it that after downloading and installing all these files that I now have to put a puzzle together just to get a simple program to run. I thought this was supposed to be an easy extension on to the C language like what is stated in print. What are the simple steps and beginning processes to get things up and running? I have VS2010, Vista, 2 GeForce 8800 GTX cards, CUDA 3.2 toolkit installed,updated drivers installed, I even have both books and they still do not cover what files need to be where in order for you to process even the “Hello World Example” program.
Greetings to all,
do you use nvcc to compile .cu file?
it seems to me that actually cuda is not supported under VS2010 but VS2008 does work very well!
try this to setupo a new project: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2046228/how-do-i-start-a-new-cuda-project-in-visual-studio-2008
Before any project remember to compile the “common” directory the basis .lib necessary to be linked with the projects you’ll make
