I have a machine with Geforce GTX 480 installed. When I try to connect through windows remote desktop connection it says that no cuda devices found. When I`ve installed VNC server and use it - it works fine.
OS - Windows XP x64
Devdrivers - latest version
Cuda driver and SDK - 3.2
Can’t do it through Remote Desktop unless you have a Tesla card running the TCC driver. RDP limits you to session 0, and any process started in session 0 can’t communicate with a WDDM device.
