Hello, I have been attempting to launch Nsight Compute on a 2019 MacBook Pro running MacOS 11.01 Big Sur, but cannot open the app after installing. I am able to open and run the 2019.4 version, but none of the 2020 versions.
Nsight Compute is not yet fully compatible with MacOS Big Sur. Full support for this will likely be added in a future version. In the meantime, you can try setting the environment variable QT_MAC_WANTS_LAYER=1 beforehand. I recommend setting it in a terminal window, and then launching Nsight Compute from the same window.
Thanks for the reply! I added the following to my info.plist file:
but the app still will not open on launch. Any other suggestions?
Please try following the suggested steps and set the variable in a terminal window, and then launch Nsight Compute from the same window, e.g. using open /Applications/NVIDIA Nsight Compute.app
Running the following command does not solve the issue for me:
QT_MAC_WANTS_LAYER=1 && open "/Applications/NVIDIA Nsight Compute.app"
You need to use the following syntax:
export QT_MAC_WANTS_LAYER=1 && open "/Applications/NVIDIA Nsight Compute.app"
Running the following command does not solve the issue for me
export QT_MAC_WANTS_LAYER=1 && open "/Applications/NVIDIA Nsight Systems.app"
The new versions seem to open fine on latest macOS but I am encountering this issue: Report file is corrupted
