The CUDA Toolkit v10.0 directory '' does not exist.

I’m having difficulty getting CUDA 10.0 to work with Visual Studio 2015.

I can open nbody_vs_2015, as the instructions say- https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-quick-start-guide/index.html

But, when I build it, I get the following error message:

The CUDA Toolkit v10.0 directory ‘’ does not exist. Please verify the CUDA Toolkit is installed properly or define the CudaToolkitDir property to resolve this error.

I know this page asked more or less the same question - https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1042441/the-cuda-toolkit-v10-0-directory-does-not-exist-/ - I followed the instructions in the answer, but it still doesn’t work for me.

The instructions were, assuming the file was named “vectorAdd”:

  • Right clicked on “vectorAdd” example > Properties
  • Configuration Properties > CUDA C/C++ > Common
  • Edited “CUDA Toolkit Custom Dir”
  • Set to “C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v10.0” (no quotes)
  • Right clicked on “vectorAdd” example > Build

But when I do that I still get the same error message.
