I’ve used nsight 4.6 on a windows 7 machine and it worked flawlessly. I’m using it to debug opengl 4.3. However, I just tried to work with nsight on windows 8.1 64 bit and my app keeps crashing, even before i can attach to the process. Heres my environment description:
windows 8.1 64 bit
Visual Studio 2013 professional edition
OpenGL 4.3 context
Geforce GTX 780 + Geforce GTX 480
THe geforce 780 is the primary card. The app runs fine if I start from within visual studio or from command line prompt. I realize nsight works on 4.2 and not above and when I ran this code on a windows 7 box, i’m able to attach to the process via nsight monitor.
This is one of those crashes where you get “XXXXXX.exe has stopped working”. a problem caused the program to stop working correctly.
My settings in the nsight project settings is Launch external program:$(LocalDebuggerCommand) and checked Application is a Launcher. This worked fine on a windows 7 64bit box but not on a windows 8.1 64bit box.
If needed I can send the app code as well. Can you also let me know if theres a way to collect the log if it might be helpful?
Great tool… but i need to make this work on win8.1.
Also is there a timeline set for support for 4.3+? I need to debug subroutines, SSBOs, image loads/saves etc.
