Beta 2.0 for Windows and Vista

Here are the beta packages for WinXP, XP64, Vista and Vista64.

Linux will follow soon

Some key notes on this beta release for Vista:

- For the moment SLI needs to be disabled for CUDA to see any devices. This has already been fixed but the fix didn't make it into this beta release.

- To use multiple GPUs, under Vista each additional GPU must have a desktop extended onto it. This means for now Tesla is not available under Vista, only GeForce and Quadro cards. XP will still work fine on Tesla C870 and D870.

- CUDA for Windows still requires compiling with Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. We will support 2008 later in the year. This is the same for XP and Vista.

Specific for 64-bit (XP64 and Vista64) there's a simple problem that was fixed but didn't make it into this package for the new SDK sample threadMigration (XP32 and Vista32 are fine). This package has the pre-built binary in the sdk bin\win64\Release directory with the wrong name "thradMigration.exe". To run the pre-built binary, please rename it to threadMigration.exe. To build the package for both Debug and Release modes under Visual Studio, change the project properties Linker->General Outputfile name from thradMigration .exe to threadMigration.exe

What GPUs are supported with this release:

- G80, G84, G86 and G92. With the exception of 9800GTX (for Windows and Vista), just didn't get into this build in-time. 9800GX2 did make it.

- Notebook device IDs have been added just for this Windows/Vista beta test release. That means you shouldn't have to mess with INF files, it should work for many CUDA-capable notebooks (still recommend 256MB video memory or more). Please note that this is a beta driver just for CUDA development/beta testing and the driver is not supported by notebook manufacturers. There is the potential with this CUDA beta driver for notebooks for trouble with suspend/hybernate/power-savings modes and fan speeds.
