beta4: CPU target without GPU hardware

My question is: is there a way to install the beta4 on a Windows machine that is lacking a GPU so that the CPU can be used as the ocl target device?


I'd like to use the beta4 runtime to target the CPU on a machine without a Radeon GPU, but the catalyst drivers won't install in the absence of a graphics card.

I've manually installed the aticalcl.dll, &c from a different machine, along with the demo applications.Now, when I try running one, I get:


$ ./RadixSort --device cpu
Error: clCreateContextFromType failed. Error code : CL_DEVICE_NOT_FOUND
