You need these main steps to run CUDA using emulation mode on windows:

  1. Install CUDA toolkit

  2. Install CUDA SDK

  3. Install Visual Studio 2005 Express or Full edition( I didn’t try Visual Studio 2008 )

  4. Add cuda/bin in the path env variable

  5. make sure you have these environment variables based on your installation directories


CUDA_COMMON_INC_PATH: i.e. C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\common\inc

CUDA_COMMON_LIB_PATH: i.e. C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK\common\lib

CUDA_INC_PATH: i.e. C:\CUDA\include


NVSDKCUDA_ROOT: i.e. C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation\NVIDIA CUDA SDK

  1. Install CUDA_VS2005 plugin to Integrate CUDA with Visual C++…-with-visual-c/

  1. Enable Syntax Highlighting for CUDA in Visual Studio…al-studio-2005/

The other thing, when you try to run your code make sure you are using Emudebug if you do the integration using CUDA_VS2005 plugin.

I hope that helps!

this helped me out…and i was able to setup cuda on windows box…

Thank you!!!

You should install as following:




4、VS 2005|2008

5、build your project

Wish you succeed!!


Study CUDA together!! Fighting!
