one way to fix CUDA Visual Studio Integration without reinstall windows

Here is what I did:

  • Keep only 1 instance of visual studio
  • Pls don’t trust “Add/Remove programs”, things are still there. Go to C:\Program File, C:\ProgramData, C:\Program File x86 and delete anything relevant to other VS versions. For example, I kept VS 2015 (vs14.0) so I deleted all vs12.0, vs15.0 files.
  • Don’t unzip the bundle and run setup.exe in CUDAVisualStudioIntegration. This may cause some strange behaviors later.

I’ve been googling around obsessedly for days. Thank god, it’s finally installed.
Good luck.
