nvvp hangs on Workspace Launcher window

About my system information:
macOX Mojave 10.14.5

java version “1.8.0_231”
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_231-b11)

I downloaded the latest cuda toolkit(CUDA Toolkit 10.1) yesterday. And I only want to use visual-profiler nvvp (I do not hold a Nvidia graphic card on this mac). When I tried to start nvvp, it stuck on the Launcher Window (the window that chooses workspace directory to store temporary files), neither keyboard or mouse works inside the Launcher Window. Could someone help?


Hi @shunfan2 I’m having this issue as well – did you figure it out?

I gave up but I think that the tool isn’t supposed to support Mac without Nvidia hardwares at all


This is related to JRE version you are using. Note that JRE 1.8u152 or later is not supported for Visual Profiler. You can download JDK from
