Windows 7 LNK1181: cannot open input file 'cutil64D.lib'

I have an application that I am trying to run using Microsoft Visual Studio, but keep running into this error “fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file ‘cutil64D.lib’”. I have been able to successfully run this application in the past, but I have not tried running it since I installed CUDA 4.0. I tried adding the ‘cutil64D.lib’ in the included additional libraries, but this didn’t work. I was wondering what I need to do in order to get this running again.


Are you sure you need the cutil64 library? Otherwhise you might aswell remove it from your Linker->“additional dependencies” in VS.

Your problem is that VS is unable to find the .lib file, so the path you specified under Linker->“additional library directories” is very likely wrong. VS is sometimes sensitive about the usage of quotation marks, try adding or removing these…

Best of luck!
