unable to download or install PVF 13.2

I have problem downloading PVF 13.2 for both windows 8,7 plus unable to successfully install a copy of the software I downloaded on 2/19/2013.

when I tried to download today, it says that the software you are looking for is unavailable.

when I tried to install the PVF132 I downloaded before (2/19), I got the following 5 errors:

  1. RegDBGetKeyValueEx(%s,%s): Value not found
  2. one of the steps failed during the configuration of MS visual studio: (code 2) this can be resolved by running cmd> devenv.exe /setup
  3. the template installation step failed during the config of MS VS, run CMD> devenv.exe /installvstemplates
  4. createFile failed in createBatFile.
  5. error, createFile(\PGI Visual Fortran, pvf_64.bat) failed in createBatFile.

my machine is i7, windows 8, GeForce 680, MS VS 2010, Cuda Toolkit 5.02, Display driver is the latest.

please help.

Hi Dolf,

Can you please try the Download again? There was a small script error that was preventing PVF from being downloaded. This error has been fixed.

Thanks,
Mat

did you guys update the software? since I could not install in my Windows 8 computer using the installation file I downloaded on 2/19/2013.

thanks,
Dolf

We updated the installer which fixed an issue where the Windows 8 SDK wouldn’t be recognized as being installed. Since the SDK is a prerequisite, the installer would stop.

does that mean the last update was the 2/19? I have installed it after and I am still having issues with Windows 8 and VS 2010

Yes, the last update was 2/19. Let me ask one of our PVF engineers to jump in here since I’m not sure.

Hi Dolf,

Have you had PVF installed on this system before? Have you installed PVF on other systems?

What version of VS 2010 are you using (i.e., professional, premium), which build (i.e., RTM, SP1) and what languages do you have installed? You should be able to see all of this from the VS 2010 Help | About menu.

I have installed the PGI on windows 7 with VS 2010 on my old i7 machine.
I am able to install a evaluation copy of 13.2 (part of academic offer from PGI license that will end in Aug. 2013)
Visual Studio 2010 Premium
Ver. 10.0 RTMRel
Windows 8, Dell XPS 8500, GeForce 680 GPU
when I compile a simple code such as:

program test1
use cudafor
implicit none

real(8), device :: aDev

end program test1

I get this warning and error:

C:\Users\Dolf\Desktop\test1\SourceFile1.f90(0) : warning W0471 : CUDA Fortran feature license not found; CUDA Fortran features disabled
C:\Users\Dolf\Desktop\test1\SourceFile1.f90(12) : error S0034 : Syntax error at or near device

do you know why Cuda features are disabled? how can I run my code into GPU??

thanks!

Glad to hear that PVF is working for you now. I’m assuming this issue is closed; please let me know if that’s not correct.

Regarding licensing: the PVF academic evaluation offer you’re using does not include accelerator features. You can get a 15-day trial license for the accelerator features from our sales department though. Contact sales@pgroup.com with your PGI account information and let them know that you’re using the PVF academic license but want to try the accelerator features too.

Hi,
Yes, I did install the 15 days trail license as administrator, now when I compile the code, I get this error the the compiler stops:

error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol MAIN_ referenced in function main

why do you think this is happening??

Dolf

f90main.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol MAIN_ referenced in function main
C:\Users\Dolf\Desktop\Cuda dev\Quick_cuda\x64\Release\Quick_cuda.exe : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals
Quick_cuda build failed.

Hi Dolf,

This means that you don’t have a “main” in your source (i…e in Fortran a “program”). Are you trying to just compile an single file and did not mean to link?

Hi Mat,

I was able to solve the problem by deleting manually all old generated files from my old PGI compiler (12.6) and it worked perfectly!.

thanks.
