I have played around with this for quite a bit. In my case, only cudart64_75.dll is needed to make it shut up. But still, it doesn’t run on a system that doesn’t have CUDA runtimes installed. What happens is that the program halts at the bits where CUDA initializations should be invoked and freezes to such a point that the program cannot be killed with the Windows task manager, nor can it be closed with the windows close button, its unbelievable that a program can jack into an operating system like that, and after a few minutes or so, the entire computer reboots for no apparent reason.
Also on my development system I frequently get bluescreens caused by “nvlddmkm.sys” AFTER running CUDA programs, i.e. it doesn’t appear that the load from the CUDA programs trips the driver, but rather something that happens maybe 10-15 minutes or so afterwards…
It’s difficult for me to give a reference as to where I’ve read about the update. In general, I’m wary of jumping on the latest update as it arrives, and when I read such a thing on forums I stay away from it altogether. Nvidia don’t seem to be very good at reporting what bug fixes they have applied with their successive updates so you will never know whether issue X or Y ever was fixed.
Perhaps it is time for another bug report then?
