Nsight installation problem windows 10 - Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error

Hi all,

I am unable to install NVIDIA_Nsight_Visual_Studio_Edition_Win64_5.3.0.17162.

I am on windows 10.

The msi installer immediately opens up with the error:

...Setup Wizard ended prematurely because of an error...

I enabled logging for msi installer following this:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/223300/how-to-enable-windows-installer-logging

And finally, the msi produced a more detailed message:

It looks like it’s tripping over the “get_VISUALSTUDIO2017LOCATION” action maybe.

Anyway, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I have the same problem. It is almost the same but the error shown in the log file is slightly different. Does nobody at NVidia have a solution?

Hi holofernes,

Can you try it again with the latest release Nsight 5.4 build please?
You can download the build here https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-visual-studio-edition-downloads?
Please tell us if you still encounter the issue.

Thanks,
Letitia

Still have the issue, the app install rolls back with no indication of why. I have vs2015, just re-installed VS2017 as well.

Hi,

Sorry for delay.
Can you provide more information please?

  • VS2017 version, professional or enterprise version?
  • WIN10 version
  • Did the issue happen if VS2017 is uninstalled?
  • Can you please uninstall VS2017, driver and nsight, reboot the machine, then install VS2017 and nsight, try it again?

Thanks,
Letitia

Hello Letitia,

Thank you for your response. Here are the answers to your questions.

  • VS2017 Pro
  • Windows 10 Pro v1709 with all updates applied
  • Same error when VS2017 is completely uninstalled
  • Reinstall of VS2017 and still the same error

I have since given up and compile everything with nvcc for .cu or cl for .c but would love to be able to run the samples with VSxxxx so i can utilize the samples to learn more.

Hi aikeith,

Thanks for your feedback.
The issue is very weird, for we never met such problems and we cannot reproduce the issue locally.
Can you please try it again on other WIN10 machines? Better on a “clearer” machine, just install OS, driver, Visual Studio and nsight.

Thanks,
Letitia

Thank you for your reply Letitia.

Reinstalling everything on my primary development machine is not an option. I did do a clean install of windows 10 Fall Creators Update approx 3 months ago, so it has gone through a lot of updates (well not major ones anyways but it is windows).

Just to clarify, the ONLY thing that doesn’t install properly is the Visual Studio plugin. However if you select that with the install, the entire install fails. If i select everything except the plugin then the install works fine, i can compile with nvcc.

Would you happen to be able to offer just the VS plugin like in a VSIX package?

Thanks for your help.

Hi aikeith,

Which version of WIN10 OS are you using on your machine? 10.0.16299.125 or higher version?

Thanks,
Letitia

Letitia,

Yes, it is.

Windows 10 Pro
Version 1709
OS Build 16299.125

Thank you :-)

Hi aikeith,

Thanks for your information.

Thanks,
Letitia

Thanks Letitia,

The issue has always happened, i have never been able to install the VS plugin.

Tried again using the link you provided which ends with:

NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition 5.5.0.18014
Setup Wizard ended prematurely

NVIDIA Nsight Visual Studio Edition 5.5.0.18014 Setup Wizard ended
prematurely because of an error. Your system has not been modified. To
install this program at a later time, run Setup Wizard again. Click the Finish
button to ext the Setup Wizard.

Thanks,
aikeith

Hi aikeith,

Did the issue happen on other machines? or just on your machine?

Thanks,
Letitia

Just on my machine. I am giving up on this since re-install of the O/S is not an option.

thanks.

I am also seeing this issue. I’m running Windows 7 Enterprise x64.

Looks to me like it’s failing because it can’t figure out how to install into Visual Studio 2017 instances it found. One instance is “Visual Studio Professional 2017” and the other is “Visual Studio Build Tools 2017 (2)”.

Hi,

I had the same issue: I tried to reinstall CUDA 9.1 - however the visual studio integration component, which seems to call the nsight uninstaller that in turn crashed, was the problem.

What solved my problem:

  • uninstall every trace of Visual Studio - no the uninstaller does not do the job, get e.g. revo uninstaller and remove everything related to visual studio (build tools, extensions, … everything starting with ‘Visual’ - Visual C++ Redistributables may be fine though)
  • to be sure also remove all nvidia related stuff
  • install visual studio again, just the basic IDE - dont install any additional components
  • install nsight (or in my case CUDA)
  • install all the other visual studio components you might need

My Setup:

  • Windows 10 Pro
  • Visual Studio Professional 15.4.5 (I downgraded from 15.5.7 because there were multiple issues with that version)

good luck!

Hi thomas.veldhouse,

Could you please try uninstalling BuildTools, then install Nsight?
