Cluster debugging installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,


    It was requested that I post this here, to help the next guy.....


    When installing a cluster on which you are going to be debugging code with the VS 2005/8 parallel debugger.  It is important that you get the debug runtime to each node.  If you follow the directions in various documents, they all say to run the VS redistributable piece on each node.  this is fine, but the included redistributable pieces only copy the release C runtime.  Without the debug runtime, you can only run the release versions of your executables, which do not have full debugging symbols.


    Instrutions on how to copy the debug runtime is here




    Additionally, you will need to copy over the debug versions of the openmp runtime, if you are going to be debugging that, as well.


    Hope this helps.
