Installing cuDNN

I’m on step 3 of section 3.2 of this installation guide. Installation Guide :: NVIDIA Deep Learning cuDNN Documentation . My goal is to be able to load the dynamic library cudnn64_8.dll . The instructions say to copy some files into some destination folders. I have the files. But I don’t have the destination folders. Should I create the destination folders such as C:\Program Files\NVIDIA\CUDNN\v8.x\bin or was I supposed to get these folders from somewhere else? To be clear, I don’t even have C:\Program Files\NVIDIA\. I only have C:\Program Files\NVIDIA Corporation and C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit.
I’m running some TensorFlow code and I get this warning.
2022-10-02 22:39:44.797031: W tensorflow/stream_executor/platform/default/] Could not load dynamic library 'cudnn64_8.dll'; dlerror: cudnn64_8.dll not found
What should I do?

Hi @urkchar ,
Which version of cudnn you are using?
I believe this post should be able to help you.


I solved the issue using miniconda3 to install TensorFlow and most of its requirements. This topic may be closed now. Thank you.
