I’m trying to install CUDA on my laptop’s GeForce GTX 850m(installed driver: 398.36) and can’t manage to do it.
I’m new to this and it can be very simple. I’m getting the error while running the nbody_vs2010.sln
“C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\CUDA Samples\v5.0\5_Simulations\nbody\nbody_vs2010.vcxproj : error : Unable to read the project file “nbody_vs2010.vcxproj”.
C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\CUDA Samples\v5.0\5_Simulations\nbody\nbody_vs2010.vcxproj(234,5): The imported project “C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\v110\BuildCustomizations\CUDA 5.0.targets” was not found. Confirm that the path in the declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.”
A few things to be noted:
I’m using VS2012, because VS2010 says the files were made in a more recent version.
I’m getting the .targets error but I was getting the .props until I found it hanging somewhere in my pc and copied.
I tried reinstalling CUDA and all kinds of Visual Studio over and over again to no luck.
The purpose of the installation is for Electrical Engineering real time simulations, so I need a nice computer power and I want to test GPU.
I’m running Windows 10-64bits even if the software compatibility is for Win 8 tops. I can’t afford to downgrade.
My processor, if its necessary, is a i7-4810MQ.
