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?
