Executing first CUDA program


I am new to CUDA programming. The configuration of my machine is MS Windows XP Professional SP2,
Intel Core2 CPU E7400@2.80GHz, 2.0GB RAM, Intel G33/G31 Express Chipset Family.

I have following two queries:

  1. Without adding any new hardware, do we have any emulator available on which we can write, compile and run CUDA programs?
  2. What are the basic steps that needs to be followed to write, compile and run first CUDA program?

I heard there are emulators available from NVIDIA for writing CUDA programs for Intel machines. Any inputs in this regard will be of great help.
