Get CUDA working on any version of Visual Studio?

Seriously, this is getting so annoying now.

Could NVIDIA sort out some support documentation that actually tells us how to write code? Theyve got a lovely reference guide which would be amazing if they actually explained how i can create a project.

The document “Getting started with Windows” is next to useless. I cant work out whether i need VS2008, VS2010 or whether i can only use VS2010 with NSight? But NSight says it needs 2x GPUs???

Seriously, this has to be a case of where you have many very clever people who are amazing at developing things, but unless you tell us clearly how we can use it then it’s as useful as a solar-powered torch. Even stackoverflow users cant really help when people post CUDA setup questions, as they dont know either.

Could one kind person (or more) please just tell me exactly how i can get to write some CUDA code and execute it? At this point in time im not bothered whether i use Visual Studio or not, but it would be nice.

Thanks in advance

I havn’t downloaded it for a while but the Software Development Kit on the Nvidia website contains VS projects

http://developer.nvidia.com/object/cuda_3_2_toolkit_rc.html
GPU Computing SDK code samples 32-bit or 64-bit

Step 4 in the release notes says
4. Build the 32-bit and/or 64-bit, release or debug
configurations of the SDK project examples using the provided *.sln solution
files for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or *_vc90.sln solution files for
Microsoft Visual Studio 2008
