Visual Profiler (CUDA 11.5, Windows 11) don't start

Hello,

I have windows 11 and CUDA V11.5. If I try to start Visual Profiler I got a java error.

Java is Version 8 Update 311.

Whats go wrong?

Hi,

From the log, looks like the java version that is used by nvvp is 32 bit version and nvvp needs 64 bit java.

The 32 bit programs are placed in folder “Program Files (x86)”
The 64 bit programs are placed in folder “Program Files”

It might possible that a system has more than one JVM installed, and PATH or JAVA_HOME is pointing to a 32-bit version.

Please refer this for setting up java for nvvp
https://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/profiler-users-guide/index.html#setup-jre

To run Visual Profiler on Windows:
Make sure that you invoke Visual Profiler with the command-line option included as shown below:
nvvp -vm “C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_77\jre\bin\java”
Note: The -vm option is only required when JRE 1.8 is not in the default path.


Thanks,

Hello,

many thanks Ramesh for your help,

I had no 64 Bit Java installed. Now I installed Java 64 Bit and the Visual Profiler starts from the “Apps-Browser” in Windows 11 without problems.

Good to know that.
