Error running bandwidthtest on Windows 10. CUDA version=9.

Whenever I run bandwidthTest.exe on powershell or cmd on windows, it gives me this error:-


[CUDA Bandwidth Test] - Starting…
Running on…

Device 0: GeForce 940M
Quick Mode

CUDA error at C:/ProgramData/NVIDIA Corporation/CUDA Samples/v9.0/1_Utilities/bandwidthTest/bandwidthTest.cu:837 code=6(cudaErrorLaunchTimeout) “cudaFree(d_idata)”


I have even tried using --memory==pinned. It ran once after that giving a success. Other I get this error. I am a student trying to configure cuda for a project, so any help would be great.

Thank You.

I have the same problem.
And I have GeForce 940M too.

I am having similar problems as well…
Same error code

Hi,

I am experiencing the same error pattern. Does someone have any insights or some way forward?

build a release version of the code, rather than debug version.
