PVF not installing

Hi PGroup,

I am trying to install PVF-132 for windows. But I am having a problem.
I have Windows 8, Dell XPS 8500, Intel i7 3370, NVIDIA GeForce 680 GPU.
I installed both Visual Studio 2010 and VS 2012 express to install PVF, unfortunately, the PVF giving me the error MS windows 8 SDK is a prerequisite for this PGI product and it does not appear to be installed on this system. so what I did I went to pgroup.com/microsoft-sdk and downloaded and installed the SDK for windows 8. I rerun the setup, still giving me the same error that it can’t see the SDK I installed in my machine.
Please advice.

cheers & thanks!
Dolf

Hi Dolf,

Sorry about that. There was a problem with our Windows installers that causes this error. We just pulled the packages from the web a few hours ago and are in the processes of rebuilding the packages. They should be available again soon.

Unfortunately, you will need to re-download PVF, but you shouldn’t need to get the Win8 SDK again.

Thanks Mat, I really appreciate the massive efforts you guys do to keep codes clean and bug free.
also, what is the difference between PVF and PVF-shell?? can I use that instead to compile cuda-fortran files for windows platform via VS 2010?

thanks,
Dolf

We do our best effort and perform a lot of testing, but sometimes we miss things. Fortunately it wont take long to fix.

The “shell” version includes the Microsoft Visual Studio shell for those users who don’t already have Visual Studio installed.

can I use that instead to compile cuda-fortran files for windows platform via VS 2010?

Sure, once we get the installer fixed.

Hi Mat,

Has the installer been released? I just tried downloading PVF with the VS Shell but the direct link doesn’t take me to anything.

Thanks Sarom. There was a typo in the package name when they posted the 13.4 release yesterday. It now been fixed.

FYI, this was unrelated to Dolf’s issue.
