I’m at my wits end trying to compile 64-bit versions of the sample projects that come with the CUDA SDK with Visual C++ Express 2010. For example, when trying to compile the bandwidthTest project, I receive the following error:
3>C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\BuildCustomizations\CUDA 4.0.targets(352,9): error MSB3721: The command ““C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v4.0\bin\nvcc.exe” -gencode=arch=compute_10,code=“sm_10,compute_10” -gencode=arch=compute_20,code=“sm_20,compute_20” --use-local-env --cl-version -ccbin “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin\x86_amd64” -I”./" -I"…/…/common/inc" -I"…/…/…/shared/inc" -I"C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v4.0\include" -G0 --keep-dir “x64\Debug” -maxrregcount=0 --machine 64 --compile -D_NEXUS_DEBUG -g -Xcompiler “/EHsc /nologo /Od /Zi /MTd " -o “x64/Debug/bandwidthTest.cu.obj” “C:\Users\barry05\AppData\Local\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA GPU Computing SDK 4.0\C\src\bandwidthTest\bandwidthTest.cu”” exited with code -1.
I’ve done some searching online and it seems I’m certainly not alone in encountering such problems. Incidentally, 32-bit compilation works fine.
I’ve downloaded and installed Visual C++ Express 2010, CUDA Toolkit 4.0.17 (64-bit), CUDA SDK 4.0.19 (64-bit) and Windows SDK 7.1 (64-bit) in that order. I’ve uninstalled/re-installed everything several times now and still no luck. I must confess that I am relatively new to Visual C++ as well as CUDA, so it’s quite possible I’m missing something very simple/stupid.
I am experiencing another problem with Visual C++ 2010 which may or may not be related. When I attempt Visual Studio registration with the Windows SDK Configuration Tool, I receive the following error:
Neither Visual Studio 2005 nor Visual C++ Express is installed on this system. You must install one of these products and rerun this application.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
