I am having a lot of trouble installing CUDA Toolkit on Amazon EC2 GPU Instances. I tried using the HVM Windows 2008 Server AMI from Amazon and also the NVIDIA GPU image both launched on g2.xlarge instances.
I connect to the instances through RDP (remote desktop protocol).
I downlaoded CUDA 5.5 Toolkit for windows vista 7 8 DEsktop 64 bit from NVIDIA website. Everytime i try to install this toolkit I get the same error from NVIDIA installer: Couldn‘t find NVIDIA compatible card.
Is it because I connect through RDP ? I try to follow : http://adnanboz.wordpress.com/2012/01/06/how-to-set-up-amazon-ec2-windows-gpu-instance-for-nvidia-cuda-development/
But i'm stuck when installing CUDA Toolkit.
AMazon documentation is very sparse for windows :
Again installing driver complains it cannot find NVIDIA card whether I launch the driver install program connected through TightVNC or through RDP.
Any pointers ?
