Compiling the "Hello World" tutorial using CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU

Hi, I'm learning OpenCL and I just viewed the introduction videos and compiled the Hello World demo. Everything is fine and dandy when I run the code with the default "CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CPU" set in the Context initialization, but if I change it to "CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU" then the output is different from what is expected.


I attached the entire code of the example .

The output with CL_DEVICE_TYPE_CPU is :


Platform number is: 1

Hello World


as expected.

The output with CL_DEVICE_TYPE_GPU is:


Platform number is: 1



And I don't understand why ...


Any guess?



EDIT: I forgot to say that I'm using an ATI Radeon 5850 GPU with Catalyst 10.3b drivers and ATI Stream 2.01 SDK
