Re^2: Firefly 7.1G with CUDA 2.3

Veinardi Suendo

Dear Alex,

Thank you very much for your help. I think it is due to some wrong instruction in input file. The problem is I do not have any reference for CUDA instruction in this new version of Firefly. So I took your input file and do some modifications, but I am not sure that my modification is correct. The program gave such message: "The image file is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine. Select OK to continue, or CANCEL to fail the DLL load." Here I include the input, output and punch files as well. I do hope that you can give me a solution.

Thank you in advance,

I do not know whether it is due to the different CUDA version (we use v2.3) or due to some specific option for each type of NVIDIA Card as written in the input file. Here, we used the cheapest one among GTX200 series: GTX260 made by Manli. We had tested this card to work with trial version of Jacket run on Matlab and everything goes well.
