    clGetPlatformIDs fails with unknown error code on Windows



      I'm trying to run the SDK Samples on Windows Vista using Visual Studio 2008. My laptop has an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 and an onboard graphics accelerator so I'm trying to run the samples in CPU mode (--device cpu). The applications fail to start, giving the following message:

      Error: clGetPlatformIDs failed. Error code : unknown error code

      The error is thrown at the line

      status = clGetPlatformIDs(0, NULL, &numPlatforms);

      where status gets the value -1001.

      I've seen other posts about this error but they were all on linux. Am I doing something wrong ?

      Thanks in advance,
