I recently installed Nsight Visual Studio Edition 3.0 RC1 in hopes of debugging CUDA 5.0 (which I have already installed and which works).
After install, I was able to start the Nisght monitor without issue. But upon starting Visual Studio 2010, I was given a criptic error that offered the option of showing the error or ignoring it. If I opted to show the error, nothing happened. No new dialog, no error, just nothing shows up. I unfortunately neglected to take down what the popup said on it. I clicked ignore since I didn’t have much of an option to do anything else. When I clicked the drop down Nsight menu option, all options are greyed out.
I closed and reopened Visual Studio. This time I don’t get any errors or popups, but everything is still greyed out. I uninstalled Nsight, rebooted my computer, and reinstalled. I still didn’t get any errors, but at the same time, everything is still greyed out.
Does anyone have any idea why the options are greyed out and/or potential steps I can take to figure out how to make them useable?
Type: Laptop (HP EliteBook 8540w)
OS: Windows 7 x64 Professional
CPU: Core i7 Q820
GFX: Nvidia Quadro FX 880m
GFX Driver: 306.96 (Note: I’m at this driver level because every Nvidia driver I have tried seems to cause my computer to BSOD at even the slightest… disturbance. The MS “certified” drivers seem to be more stable, but aren’t much better. The most stable drivers I can find are the ones from HP themselves, which has 306.96 as the latest version. I would rather not have to try to install a newer driver as “useable computer” >>> “running Nsight”)
CUDA: 5.0 (Notebook x64)
I’m very new to CUDA development, but if you have any questions or comments, let me know.
