    Failed to Run OpenCL on CPU of Microsoft Azure


      Hi, Recently I want to build a OpenCL training platfrom on MicroSoft Azure. To get the customer familiar with OpenCL, beginning with CPU as OpenCL device.

      However, I failed to get clinfo run on Micrsoft Azure. Help needed here.


      My understanding is APP SDK has CPU OpenCL runtime so only installing APP SDK 2.9 is enough. Here's what I got:


      1, Windows Server 2008/2012 with APP SDK only: clinfo crashed.

      2, Windows Server 2008/2012 with catalyst 16.7 and APP SDK 2.9: clinfo crashed.

      3, Ubuntu 12.0 with APP SDK only: clinfo reported part of information, ending with ERROR: clBuildProgram (-11).


      So the question is:

      Does APP SDK include an CPU runime?

      Is there any possibility of run OpenCL on Microsoft Azure like VM and take CPU as OpenCL device?
