Unrecognized function or variable 'nvcc'. with Matlab R2022a

17 views (last 30 days)
I am running Matlab R2022a with CUDA 11.2 on Windows (Visual Studio Community 2019). I have a add_kernel.cu file in my folder but fail to compile it:
nvcc -ptx add_kernel.cu
Unrecognized function or variable 'nvcc'.
Matlab seems to recognize my CUDA version:
system('nvcc --version')
nvcc: NVIDIA (R) Cuda compiler driver
Copyright (c) 2005-2020 NVIDIA Corporation
Built on Mon_Nov_30_19:15:10_Pacific_Standard_Time_2020
Cuda compilation tools, release 11.2, V11.2.67
Build cuda_11.2.r11.2/compiler.29373293_0
ans =
0
I have looked around and people suggested to explicitly add the pathes of the ncc file and the VS execution which I already tried:
addpath(genpath('C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Tools\MSVC\14.29.30133\bin\Hostx64\x64'))
addpath(genpath('C:\Program Files\NVIDIA GPU Computing Toolkit\CUDA\v11.2\bin'))
I think it is irrelavent but Matlab also finds my GPU:
gpuDevice

I would be glad about any suggestions.

nvcc is a NVIDIA compiler, not a MATLAB function. I suspect what you want is mexcuda.
