Jumping straight into this for the first time, no idea what I am doing so please stick with me…
I grabbed this .cpp file from github. The dev has a remark that simply says the following:
// compile with: nvcc -ccbin=g+±5 -O3 -std=c++11 -arch compute_60 -x cu search.cpp -o search
I ran it. Complained about not being able to find CL.exe, found CL.exe to be part of Visual Studio so I installed visual studio community and dumped one of the CL.exe from into the PATH.
Ran the command again, and get the following:
Failed to run C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.22.27905\bin\Hostx64\x64/g+±5 (The system cannot find the file specified.).
At this point I am going to assume that the person who was doing this was doing it in linux or with some other compiler? No idea what g++ is.
If I remove that from the command line and run this:
nvcc -O3 -std=c++11 -arch compute_60 -x cu seedsearch.cpp -o seedsearch.exe
I then get:
nvcc fatal : Host compiler targets unsupported OS.
Is there a way at all I can get this to run in windows?
