Compiling under Vista 64

Hi all,

I have a new PC with 8GB DDR memory and a new tesla.
I use Windows Vista 64bits (needed to detect the 8GB memory).
So, I’ve installed VUDA 2.0 drivers, tollkit and SDK.
I’ve also installed Visual C++ Express Edition 2005 and cygwin to compile in a terminal.
However it seems that the CUDA compilation doesn’t works with VC2005 under Vista 64.

Could you tell me how to compile my code under vista 64 with another compiler (like GCC)?



It is probably best to ask in the Vista forum?

As far as I know there is no possibility t o compile with gcc under windows. You can however always install a 64bit linux version offcourse ;)

Vista 64 works fine with Visual Studio .Net 2005. I have never used “Visual C++ Express Edition 2005” but I would assume it’s the same underlying compiler.

Just be aware that CUDA does not work under remote desktop/terminal server, since these features make use of a terminal server display driver, bypassing the NV drivers.
