Setup openCL with eclipse in windows 7

Hello.

I ve been trying to find a tutorial on how to setup opencl properly on windows 7 64bit using eclipse, in order to run my first "hello world" program, and cant find anything useful.

Am I wasting time and should probably use visual studio? In addition, what exactly do I need for the installation? Any specific compiler etc (have mingw installed)?I have the latest amd drivers installed 13.1 (hd7870).

Thanks in advance and sorry for my noobism.

Re: Setup openCL with eclipse in windows 7

Although i don't say that it is not possible, but I have never used eclipse for opencl on windows. AMD provides Visual studio files and make files. So you can use Visual Studio, or Mingw. From compiler's point MS VC++ compiler, or GCC or ICL should be fine.

It seems you have Mingw installed. That is good enough to Run APP SDK Samples.

Check http://developer.amd.com/download/AMD_APP_SDK_Getting_Started_Guide.pdf for more help
