CUDA 2.0 Not compatible with VS 2008? Trying to compile my CUDA sample code


I’m having difficulties compiling CUDA codes…
I’ve downloaded Nvidia WinXP driver, toolkit and SDK, installed the VS Wizard, created a CUDA project and tried to compile in VS.

This is the error message I get:

nvcc fatal : nvcc cannot find a supported cl version. Only MSVC 7.1 and MSVC 8.0 are supported

So I tried to compile on DOS command line using NVCC. No good, the very same error message comes on.

Isn’t CUDA 2.0 compatible with VS 2008 cl compiler?

Please, help!

No, it’s not, but you should be using at least 2.3 (probably the 3.0 beta) at this point instead of 2.0. 2.0 is ancient.
