Cuda 2.2 / Visual Studio 32-bit to 64-bit suckiness.

I have been working with nVidia’s Cuda SDK to speed up execution of my Monte Carlo photon transport simulations.

However, after the switch to 64-bit Win7, I’ve discovered that the 32-bit programs that I compiled previously don’t run in Win7 64-bit, even though WoW is supposed to let you run 32-bit programs in the 64-bit OS.

To make matters worse, I can’t get the 64-bit version of the Cuda 2.2 Toolkit and SDK to recompile the programs in 64-bit in Visual Studio 2008 (64-bit).

This is going to take some time to sort out. Grrr…
