Compiler failed to translate accelerator region

I have been trying to use openACC on my laptop, MSI GP63 8DR, GTX 1050 ti. I have the following code to compile and I am pretty sure the code is correct since I have tried it on an Online lab where I am taking a course.

The compiler works perfectly for CPU, but when I tried the GPU, the following syntax, it gives the next error.

pgcc -fast -ta=tesla:cc60,managed -Minfo=accel -o laplace jacobi.c laplace2d.c && echo “Compilation Successful” && ./laplace


pgcc-Warning-The -ta=tesla:managed option is not supported for win-64 systems

It looks like there is a compatibility issue, well, I don’t know how to fix it without downgrading my OS.

Thank you for reading.

The following is the code I want t compile.

Hi rapastranac,

Currently we do not support the -ta=tesla:managed memory on Windows.

The managed option will automatically manage memory such that it is available to the GPU when needed (though sometimes it will do it in an suboptimal way). Without it, you’ll need to manually move the data with data directives

You could surround the while loop with the appropriate clauses. The specification (Specification | OpenACC) has a full listing of the data clauses. In this case, since Anew doesn’t look like it is needed by the host, it can be a created solely on the GPU

For example,

#pragma acc data copy(A) create(Anew)
while ...
