I've downloaded the latest version (2.9) of the AMD App SDK with the intent of developing and running OpenCL based programs on my laptop's GPU. This laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1564, with Windows 7 x64 and an integrated Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5450 video adapter with 1GB RAM. I installed Visual Studio 2010 and tried to run the sample OpenCL projects included in the SDK, compiling was ok but all of them threw an execution error: "clGetPlatformIDs failed. Error code : CL_PLATFORM_NOT_FOUND_KHR". So, created a new project and compiled a minimal code which consisted in a call to clGetPlatformIDs, that always returned -1001.
I swear I've been googling and trying things for hours without any success. I tried updating catalyst, but the latest version (14) doesn't seem to offer drivers for my video card. Version 13.12 installed a new driver, but nothing changed.In the page where I downloaded the SDK, it was stated that my GPU was supported for OpenCL programming. In other sites It is said that it supports only ATI Stream SDK 2.3 (which I cannot found anywhere), and in others they said it doesn't support OpenCL at all. In some forum threads they spoke about idc registration, but I don't think it is related. Also, following a suggestion I found, I installed and launched GPU-Z, according to which my card does not support OpenCL.
At this point I am completely lost and clueless. I refuse to accept that my laptop's GPU does not support OpenCL because I found a couple sites (including AMD SDK download site), it is stated the opposite. I will appreciate any help or suggestion on this issue.
Thanks in advance.
