Hi Patrick, no I didn't try to compile & start the examples. I just downloaded the CUDA driver from Nvidia & didn't get any examples. I downgraded the driver to 3.1.17 now (used to have 3.2.17, the latest from Nvidia for the 9600M GT). However, still the same: CUDAResourcesInstall immediately gives a $Failed as result and I can't manage to get the CUDA resources installed manually: In:= CUDAResourcesInstall["/Users/stefan/Downloads/CUDAResources-OSX-22.214.171.124.p= aclet"] During evaluation of In:= Message::name: Message name CUDAResources paclet path `1` is not valid. is not of the form symbol::name or symbol::name::language. >> Out= $Failed As mentioned I just renamed the downloaded file, which came in as ..paclet.zip to .paclet . Still clueless, Stefan.
