I’m trying to use the NVIDIA Tools Extension to perform a more accurate performance assessment of a CUDA code with the Visual Profiler. I’m using Visual Studio 2010 for developing the code.
To setup Visual Studio 2010 for this feature, I have added
Properties -> Linker -> General -> Additional Library Directories -> $(NVTOOLSEXT_PATH)\lib$(Platform);
Properties -> Linker -> General -> Input -> Additional Dependencies -> nvToolsExt32_1.lib;
However, when I use
the compiler says
Error 1 error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘nvToolsExt’: No such file or directory
The environmental variable NVTOOLSEXT_PATH is set as
NVTOOLSEXT_PATH=C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\nvToolsExt\
but the directory C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\nvToolsExt\ is not present on my system and so I think that the NVIDIA Tools Extension is not installed.
I have two questions:
- Is the above procedure to set up Visual Studio 2010 for the NVIDIA Tools Extension feature correct?
- How to install the tools?
Thanks in advance.
