cublas library error CUDA Toolkit 3.2 (3.1 works)


I figured out a problem with the cublas library. This problem happens only with the CUDA Toolkit 3.2. For CUDA Toolkit 3.1 everything is fine.

First of all, here is my minimal example code:

#include <cublas.h>

void main(void)




When using CUDA Toolkit 3.2 and I start this simple example then I get a numerous of this exceptions before reaching the cublasInit() function:

First-chance exception at 0x75c09617 in cublaserror.exe: Microsoft C+±exception: cudaError at 0x0020f614.

I would like to know if this is a known issue or if there is something wrong with my project configuration. Anyhow, it is strange that this problem does not happen when using CUDA Toolkit 3.1.

My development environment:

  • Windows 7 Professional 32-bit

  • Visual Studio 2008

  • GeForce GTX 480

  • Parallel Nsight 1.5

Best regards
