I am unable to run the NVIDIA Visual Profiler from the GUI, it is returning “Profiling failed: Unable to profile application. “Internal error: the profiler is not configured correctly””. The console is saying: “Error: Encountered invalid option: – track-memory-allocations”, this is the case even while the Track Memory Allocations box is unchecked. The problem occurs on all cuda programs, including the nvidia samples.
In the command line everything seems to work fine and I am able to pass the results to the Visual Profiler using the .nvprof file.
Current version of the profiler installed is 9.1.85 (21), nvcc version is 9.1.85 as well.
Ubuntu 16.04 is running on the 4.10 kernel.
Please advice on how to solve this issues as I’m only bumping into openACC related errors on google.
