CUDA 11.1 with Windows 10 x64, VS 2019 Community?

I have a Quatro p1000, I’m having a very difficult time getting CUDA 11.1 installed.

I have a Windows 10 x64 machine with VS 2019 Community installed, all the updates are up-to-date for both Windows and VS2019 CE.

In the Nvidia CUDA setup log, I see:

If I do a custom install and skip all the Visual Studio options, it installs, but deviceQuery.exe fails, but then, vnidia-smi.exe tells me:

NVIDIA-SMI 431.98 Driver Version: 431.98 CUDA Version: 10.1

But, why is it 10.1 if I installed 11.1? Can VS2019 Community Edition even be used? It is not clear from https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/archive/11.1.0/cuda-installation-guide-microsoft-windows/index.html if “VS2019 Community” will work.

Does anyone know if Visual Studio Community 2019 Version 16.8.3 will work for CUDA installation?

Yes it can, I am using VS2019.

Thanks al0vya … do you mean the community edition of VS2019 ?

Yes, I am using Community.

Ok, then I should be ok with that also. Thanks for the help!
