MS WDDM1.*, Corel's Visual Studio Pro X6, eVGA GTX 460 SE and CUDA?
Hello, I have the same question. I have an eVGA GTX 460 SE which is CUDA 2.1 capable. After I ran the latest version of Corel's Visual Studio Pro X6 SP1, I discovered X6 SP1 was not using CUDA at all. I used both Sysinternals Process Explorer and TechPowerUp GPU-Z to see if my GPU was being used. It is not. Corel's VSPX6_Matrix_EN.pdf file says "NVIDIA® CUDA™ optimization" going back all the way to Corel VS X4 but I can't make it work for X6 with my GTX 460 SE.
I installed the best nVidia drivers I could for this card and my system, 314.22-desktop-win8-Windows 7-winvista-64bit-english-whql.exe, but it didn't make any difference. Right now, the only choice I have is to upgrade to two $400 EVGA 02G-P4-2770-KR GeForce GTX 770 2GB cards. My system has 5 monitors. I would prefer to avoid this if possible. My other card is a PNY Quadro NVS 450 512MB x16. I only use Corel VS X6 Pro on my main GTX 460 SE card. I even changed the nVidia Control Panel Manage 3D Settings to only use the GTX 460 SE card as the CUDA GPU. I also copied the cuDAC32.dll file located in the "Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X6" folder into the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder. Nothing has helped. Here is a full discussion of the CUDA problem for VS X6 SP1 Pro.
Here are the general specs for my system:
Intel i7 870 CPU not O/C'd
Asus P7P55D-E Pro Mobo
16 GB RAM
eVGA GTX 460 SE 1 GB
PNY Quadro NVS 450 512 MB
All hardware acceleration options are ticked in VS X6 SP1 Pro
I have not installed Microsoft's Graphics Adapter WDDM1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 drivers from Microsoft Windows 7-64 Pro Update. If I were to install them, would this make any difference and enable my GTX 460 SE to use CUDA for Visual Studio Pro X6? I am not a big believer in Corel's programming abilities. I am doubtful this will make any difference. Does anyone have any experience with VS X4-6 and CUDA?
What exactly are these? Are they just nVidia video drivers or are they additional drivers Microsoft Windows needs to function?
