Visual Debugger Connection

Hey there,

I wanted to use the Visual Debugger for checking the PhysX Part of my Application.
I followed the Guide which is Shipped with PhysX 3.2.1

I added this function to my code

void CPhysic::ConnectToPVD()
	if(gPhysicsSDK->getPvdConnectionManager() == NULL)

	const char*  pvd_host = "";
	int          port     = 5425;
	unsigned int timeout  = 100;

	PxVisualDebuggerConnectionFlags connectionFlags = PxVisualDebuggerExt::getAllConnectionFlags();

	theConnection = PxVisualDebuggerExt::createConnection(gPhysicsSDK->getPvdConnectionManager(),											pvd_host, port, timeout, connectionFlags);

But getPvdConnectionManager() returns NULL and so no connection could work.

How I can “activate” support for Visual Debugger on Win7 64bit with Vs 2010 Express Debug Mode


I also have this problem. I’m using PhysX3.2.4 and VS2012.

Same here - with PhysX 3.3.1 and VS2012.

When starting PVD, I get some error messages: “The system cannot find the file specified. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002) - Failed to start pvd console”. Maybe that’s the reason?

Does there happen to be a solution already?
