CUDA 5 Visual Studio 2010 Syntax Highlighting


I’ve installed the CUDA 5 Toolkit/SDK/driver, and the VS integration works fine, except for the syntax highlighting.

Is that supposed to work out of the box, or is there a usertype.dat or something similar, like in the previous versions?


You need to install NSight. You have to sign up for it (confirmation email comes in a few minutes) and then you can download it. It will give you syntax highlighting and better debugging capabilities. Basically, if you’re serious about CUDA, then take a few seconds to sign up and get it.
