Nsight 5.4 Unable to use graphic debugging

Hi,

I am using Nsight 5.4 with Visual Studio Professional Update 5.
Graphic card: Quadro K2200
Driver v385.90
Windows 7 SP1 x64

When I tried to Start Graphics debugging on my OpenGL 4.5 application I have the following message.
“Connection to the Nsight monitor was terminated abnormally. Please check the connection with the remote machine”
Here is the Nsight monitor stack:

Application : Nsight.Monitor.exe
Version du Framework : v4.0.30319
Description : le processus a été arrêté en raison d’une exception non gérée.
Informations sur l’exception : System.NullReferenceException
Pile :
à .Nvda.Messaging.InterprocessMessageQueue.GetMessagesAvailableEvent(Nvda.Messaging.InterprocessMessageQueue*)
à .Nvda.Messaging.CoIpcMessenger.MessagingThread(Nvda.Messaging.CoIpcMessenger*)
à .Nvda.Messaging.CoIpcMessenger.MessagingThread_(Void*)

The attachment works with Nsight 5.3.

Thanks,
Thomas

Hi tpithon,

I’m sorry for the problem you met. Can you provide more information please?

  • Did the issue happen with any other samples?
  • the version of Visual Studio, VS2015, VS2017?
  • Can you uninstall Nsight and install it then try your sample again?
  • If the issue happened all the time, can you provide your sample to us then we can identify the issue quickly?

Thanks,
Letitia

Hi Letitia,

I reproduce the issue all the time with the “Bindless Graphics Sample” provided on the Nvidia Gameworks page.
I use visual studio Professional 2013 Update 5.
And yes I tried after reinstalling Nsight.

Thanks,
Thomas

Hi tpithon,

Thanks for your information.
I can repro the issue locally, and I’ve created an internal bug to track it.

Thanks,

Hi Letitia,

Is there any update you could share on this bug?

FYI I’ve encountered a crash with very similar symptoms (same call stack, affects nsight 5.3+ as well) and suspect the two could be related:
