when i install [Nsight Tegra 1.0, Visual Studio Edition], An error1001 occurred.

My System is: Windows7sp1 x64
Visutal Studio install on N:\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0

Hi roxtu - this is a known problem with the Nsight Tegra install.

Visual Studio needs to be on the C:\ drive.

We will have this addressed for the next release.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Hi, the installer fails to download the jdk, other tools fails to download too.

can you tell me more about your setup? what platform? what errors are you seeing?

For some reason I can not download the Dev Pack 2.0. The site https://developer.nvidia.com/develop-tegra sends me to an empty download for Windows.

Same here, was not able to download either the OSx or the Windows version :( Windows version give me an empty download page ( no file to download ) OSx version give me a link that end to a 404.

Any chance you can fix that quickly ? I need to try all the cool debugging feature on my new nexus 7 :).

Thanks !

Seems the download was fixed, it worked for me now.
Happy to take a look now

Hey guys - we had some website issues over the weekend that broke the downloads.

Everything should be back up and working at this point - sorry for the inconvenience!

Hi,

i am using the TADP 2.0 on my windows machine, but have problems getting it to install on my macbook. it always says its missing Java, yet the most up to date JDK is installed and working. I’m running MacOS X 10.8.2

Thanks for any hints

Hi,

I managed to get it installed on my Macbook by myself now. The “trick” was to use /usr/libexec/java_home to set the correct Java version (1.6). I also exported JAVA_HOME using the .bash_profile. After doing so, I was able to install TADP 2.0 from a terminal. I also installed the binary directly, not using the .app File.

Maybe this will be helpful for more users

hpw i dowload

sry…how to dowload this program??

I currently have the version 1 installed on a Windows 7 PC.

Do I need to uninstall everything before I install the new version 2?

Hi All - the download issue has been fixed.

Yes – I would recommend uninstalling before installing the new version.

Cheers!

Installed the latest version. However, when I tried to build the auto generated sample app, HelloWorld, I got the following build error message:

1> -dex:

I didn’t have this problem when using the older version of the Nsight with VisualStudio 2010.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

It’s an Ant/JDK issue which sometimes happen and usually depends on the amount of the available RAM. You could try installing 64-bit JDK or modifying JVM heap sizes in project properties on the Ant Build General page.

Thanks for the suggestions and still need help.

I actually have 64-bit JDK installed on my machine. I increased the heap size to 2048MB (initial)
and 4096MB (max). Still have problem. Here is the error I got:

1> -dex:
1> [dex] input: C:\Perforce\ywu_TWu\sandbox\AdvancedTechnologies\Android1\Android1\Tegra-Android\Debug\bin\classes
1> [dex] input: C:\NVPACK\android-sdk-windows\tools\support\annotations.jar
1> [dex] Pre-Dexing C:\NVPACK\android-sdk-windows\tools\support\annotations.jar -> annotations-6865d278797e29f45d2d74a7ff3c20f6.jar
1> [dx] Error occurred during initialization of VM
1> [dx] Could not reserve enough space for object heap
1> [dx] Could not create the Java virtual machine.
1>
1> BUILD FAILED

You may want to try and set it lower than the default values - something around 256MB, for example. Trying a 32bit JDK if you have 64bit installed is worth a shot as well. We haven’t been able to find a robust way to fix this error, so I’m afraid you just have to try out various combinations to find the one that works on your machine.

In case anyone has similar problems, here is my fix:

Go to Start->Control Panel->System->Advanced(tab)->Environment Variables->System Variables->New:
Variable name: _JAVA_OPTIONS
Variable value: -Xmx512M

With this fix, I can now build the sample apps.

However, I’m still having problem starting the NDK debugger, here is the error I got:

NDK: GdbServerReceiver: run-as: Package ‘com.example.xxxandroid’ is unknown
NDK: Gdbserver not started properly
NDK: Launch error: Failed to connect to remote VM

Any suggestions?
