# error compiling cannot open include file cutil.h

hi,

I’m trying to compile Smith Waterman program using CUDA and I keep getting this error which says, “cannot open include file cutil.h”
I added C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\common\inc to my project properties as one of the included directories.
Still no luck…!
Any suggestions?

I would try if the cutil.h is not in CUDA directory, so you might need to specify #include “CUDA/cutil.h” + also check if you have CUDA libraries available.
