Install cuda 8 on windows

In the release notes, it says…

‣ Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 (VC14) is now supported.

When I try and compile the samples why does it say this:

Error C1189 #error: Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 Update >= 2 is not supported yet!


CUDA 8.0 RC(release candidate) is limited to use on VS2015 Update 1.
but CUDA 8.0 supports VS2015 Update 3.

I’m afraid you use RC of CUDA8…

this was not the release candidate.

build cuda_8.0.27_windows.exe

8.0.27 is the release candidate

The production version available now is 8.0.44

You should use the production version from

ok, cool thanks
