Recently i decided to pick your product for my Ph.D. graduation project. Having installed my new GTX280, i got the following config: Asus P6T Deluxe, Core i7-920, GTX280, 4Gb RAM, Vista x64 Ultimate, etc.
And everything was done only to discover that i can’t install CUDA Toolkit (of course win64 version)! Installation of v2.1 was going all good (copying) until the InstallShield Window minimized to tray and just stood there completely frozen for more than a couple of hours. Task can’t be closed, only process-killed. Having thought that it might be a version related bug, i DL’ed a v2.0, for the same picture.
It seems to me, that it fail to correctly register in Win-registry. Also uninstall is broken, giving me error -5001. Cycling power doesn’t solve it. Only manual cleaning of registry and InstallShield temp do. But still then, i can’t install ANY version of CUDA Toolkit (SDK installs OK)!!!
P.S. Before installing CUDA Toolkit i did a full install of MS Visual C++ 2008 Express, which updated the Windows Installer to 4.5. Does this matter?
Please help me! My project is totally based on CUDA and is falling apart because of this strange bug!
