I need some help locating what caused my NSight profiler to stop working.
First I’ll provide some info & background:
OS: Windows 7 Pro 64bit
Hardware GPU: GeForce Titan GTX
IDE: Visual Studio 2012 update 3
NSIght version 3.2.2
nVidia Display Driver Version: 331.82
Cuda SDK version 5.5
I’m developing some MFC graphics application that contains both openGL & openCL.
Project is compiled as 64bit EXE.
Till few hours ago, I had installed NSight 3.1 with display driver version 327.23 & everything worked fine - meaning I could start profiler & get timeline graph.
Only then I realized that some bug that caused me some performance issues when I used the openCL API of “clEnqueueAcquireGLObjects()”. After some “digging” I came across some post on stackoverflow, I understood that was nVidia driver bug that was fixed on 331.x drivers.
So I updated to driver 331.58.
Then when I tried to run profiler with activity type of “Trace Application” & “Trace Settings” set to “Tools Extension”, everytime I click “Launch”, the application never opens, and then I get error saying “no events captured”. Needles to say running application via F5 / Run works just fine.
Same goes for if I change the “Trace Settings” to just “System” (without checking the “Tools Extension”).
I assumed this might be some NSight + driver versions conflict, so i’ve downloaded from internet NSight Visual Studio 3.2.2 & the driver version that is competable with it (version 331.82) & yet, I can’t get it to start application. It’s like - application starts & immediately closes.
I get no error’s or message boxes saying why it’s no opening.
I’ve attempted to see logs for some usefull info, but could not see anything usefull.
Important to mention there is no firewall on PC, and when I do “connect” I get no error’s.
Also, After I’ve installed NSight version 3.2.2, I copies the relevant dll to the EXE bin directory & copied the lib + include to my solution workspace, to link against those.
Can anyone please advise about what can I do to solve this problem ??
(Or at least diagnose why is it not running… ??!)
Would appreciate any help on matter,
