can't make cuda 3.0 work with visual c++ 2008

Hello!

i’am using visual c++ 2008 profesional on win7 x64 . i have instaled cuda 3.0 ( driver , toolkit… everyting that was on the download site).
Sice then i have tried to make it work with visual c++ profesional but i faild!! ( it’s been 4 days of anoing trying and i think it’s realy stupind that there isen’t an instaler that duoes all the work!!!) .

i’ve Googled alot!

Could someone please send me a link or write a complite idiot’s guide to instaling and making cuda 3.0 work with visual c++ 2008 profesional ( from what stuff to download , in witch order to instal , what custom buid steps to add …)??

thanks!!

When you say failed, what is the nature of the failure? What errors are you getting?

Can you at least recompile the SDK examples?

so i could compile the SDK examples at the begining after i instaled the SDK but they didn’t run because of the mising dll “cudart64_30_13.dll” wich i can’t find on my pc.

After i’ve tried to set the rule from “\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\common” for the build of “*.cu” files and tryied to create a new project to test it.

When tryied to compile it i sow that the proget had only one option for " win32" so i added the “x64”.

Now everyting compiles (even .cu files) but i get link errors :

and i can’t find the .lib file i need or are there any other errors that i’ve made???

here is the code i’ve tried to compile:

#include <stdio.h>

#include <assert.h>

#include <cuda.h>

#include <iostream>

#include <cuda_runtime.h>

#include <npp.h>

#include <device_launch_parameters.h>

using namespace std;

int main(void)

{

	cout<<"running";

   float *a_h, *b_h;	 // pointers to host memory

   float *a_d, *b_d;	 // pointers to device memory

   int N = 14;

   int i;

   // allocate arrays on host

   a_h = (float *)malloc(sizeof(float)*N);

   b_h = (float *)malloc(sizeof(float)*N);

   // allocate arrays on device

   cudaMalloc((void **) &a_d, sizeof(float)*N);

   cudaMalloc((void **) &b_d, sizeof(float)*N);

   // initialize host data

   for (i=0; i<N; i++) {

	  a_h[i] = 10.f+i;

	  b_h[i] = 0.f;

   }

   // send data from host to device: a_h to a_d 

   cudaMemcpy(a_d, a_h, sizeof(float)*N, cudaMemcpyHostToDevice);

   // copy data within device: a_d to b_d

   cudaMemcpy(b_d, a_d, sizeof(float)*N, cudaMemcpyDeviceToDevice);

   // retrieve data from device: b_d to b_h

   cudaMemcpy(b_h, b_d, sizeof(float)*N, cudaMemcpyDeviceToHost);

   // check result

   for (i=0; i<N; i++)

	  assert(a_h[i] == b_h[i]);

   // cleanup

   free(a_h); free(b_h); 

   cudaFree(a_d); cudaFree(b_d);

	

   return 0;

}

I also have linking problem with NPP. I use cuda 3.0 with NPP 1.1. I tried to compile the sample project freeImageInterop and it gives me error like this. I already copy all .lib and .dll files to the \NPP_1_1_Windows32\SDK\bin\win32

The sample programs can work now! Previously I tried to compile boxFilter_vc8.vcproj located in D:\NPP_1_1_Windows32\SDK\samples\boxFilter with VC2005, it can not link. Now I compile SDK_vc8.sln in D:\NPP_1_1_Windows32\SDK. I also modify the project file following advice in http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtop…8486&hl=npp. Problem solved.
