Nsight Monitor crashes

Nsight monitor is crashing, with the following message…

Failed with an exception CommunicationException, ‘A TCP error (10013: An attempt
was made to access a socket in a way forbidden by its access permissions)
occurred while listening on IP Endpoint=’

I am running Visual Studio 2010, with CUDA Toolkit 6.5, on Windows 7 64 bit. I have a 9800 GT card, and I have updated to the latest driver 340.52 (which reports as in Device Manager). I have uninstalled NSight, and installed version 4.5, and 4.2, and all behave the same.

My very simple CUDA code is also not doing anything, although does not produce any runtime errors, so I wonder if the 9800 GT is not supported anymore by the development tools?

Please let me know how to resolve this problem.

Hi surfdabbler,

From your log, it looks like a permission issue, maybe you should try to use a admin privilege account to take a try. Also the IP address looks weird, maybe you need to check your ethernet adapter and your system to make sure you got the IP address as expected.

I have to say 340.52 is not the latest driver and your 9800GT is too old, and it should has been removed from Nsight’s support list: [https://developer.nvidia.com/nsight-visual-studio-edition-supported-gpus-full-list]


I have tried running my code on my laptop with a 630M. NSight and the CUDA code work on the laptop, but nothing works on my desktop. I guess the 9800 is just too old to work with the latest CUDA development environment.

Update - Yep, I queried the capabilities of the 9800 GT using cudaGetDeviceCapabilites, and it returns 1,1 for the compute capabilities, and the nvcc compiler only supports 20,20 as the minimum. Looks like I’m going shopping…
