amd app installation in virtual box

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm trying to install the amd app sdk in a windows 7 64bit guest os in virtualbox. I would like to do this just for building OpenCL applications and testing them on a CPU. I'm not intending to run gpu applications inside virtual box. I just need to opencl runtime.

The installer for the amd app sdk v 2.7 (64bit) fails with an error message "Application Install: install package not supported on this platform". When I hit ok the other components (kernel analyzer and profiler) install, but when I try to run them they fail because they can't find the opencl dlls (e.g. aticalrt.dll).

So my questions are:

- Is it possible to install the AMD APP SDK in windows in virtual box?

- Are there any extra steps I need to take (e.g. some additional configuration in virtualbox)?

- Does a different version of the SDK work (e.g. 32bit or an older version)

Thanks a lot in advance.

Cheers,

Dominic

Ok, I made it. No extra steps. Install virtualbox4.1.18-78361. Then install win7 64bit OS in virtualbox. Last install SDK 2.7. Good luck.

I'm sorry, I met some problems when installing virtualbox. So I installed SDK2.7 in VMware Workstation, and there is nothing wrong.
