Provided sample application crashes when profiling - is this a driver issue?

I’m going through the pluralsight course on CUDA programming, and i’m using the basic CUDA program that is there by default when making a new CUDA 8.0 project. (here’s a gist if you’re not familiar: )

I’m trying to “Profile CUDA Application” via the Nsight performance analysis, but when I launch via application control I just get a “projectname.exe has stopped work, windows is looking for a solution to the problem”

upon debugging, the actual runtime exception being thrown is:
Unhandled exception at 0x033F3B14 (Nvda.CudaProfileInjection.dll) in projectname.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x00000024.

Is this something i’ve messed up in my setup? I’m pretty positive i’ve done everything the instructor has.

I’m in the latest version of Visual studio 2015 as well as the CUDA toolkit, my gpu driver version is 382.05, and my card is a 1080ti

This crash from nsight, I will have a check, thank you for reporting this.

same problem(

Exception thrown at 0x00007FFFB93AD595 (Nvda.CudaProfileInjection.dll) in example.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x0000000000000030.

VS 2015, CUDA 8.0, GTX 1080TI, driver 387.92

ok. CUDA 9.0 works fine
