NSIGHT: Unable to launch... because architecture type is Unknown.

Remote Analysis.

  • Previously had 5.3 on both Local and Remote systems.
  • I installed 6.0 on the Local system.
    • No problems running remote analysis.
  • I installed 6.0 on remote system.
    • Saw error, “Command failure. Type: System.InvalidOperationExecution Exception: Unable to launch … *.exe because architecture type is Unknown.”
  • I uninstalled 6.0 on remote system.
  • I installed 5.6 on remote system.
    • Same problem.
  • I uninstalled 5.6 from remote system.
  • I installed 5.3 (original) on remote system.
    • remote analysis is now working.

What can I do to get this functionality working again using the latest NSIGHT?

Same problem here

Thank’s!! Do you have the link of the web site to search for the bug number? I have no idea, and I’m not finding it.

Since I’m not the only one having this issue, I figured I’d create the bug.

Thanks for the bug report, we’ve found the issue and it’ll be fixed. The problem was that it was checking the architecture of the .exe at the local path rather than the remote mirror path.

For now you can work around this by also having the .exe on the target at a path that matches the local path. For example, if the local path of the .exe is C:\temp\app.exe, have it at that same path on the target. Note that it will still be launched from the mirror path. Sorry for the issues.

Good News! This issue has been fixed in the latest version of Nsight VSE. Please download from https://developer.nvidia.com/gameworksdownload#?dn=nsight-visual-studio-edition-2019-1
