When building a Visual Studio solution which has CUDA source files (
*.cu), LNK2005 linker errors of the following kind might be seen:
LIBCMT.lib(hooks.obj) : error LNK2005: "void __cdecl terminate(void)" (?terminate@@YAXXZ) already defined in MSVCRT.lib(MSVCR90.dll)
What does it mean?
This indicates a mismatch between the kind of C runtime library used by the CUDA Build Rule and that used for the rest of the Visual C++ project.
How to fix it?
This problem can be fixed by making both of these use the same kind of C runtime library. For example, if the Visual C++ project is compiled using
Multi Threaded DLL (/MD) and the CUDA build rule has
Multi Threaded (/MT), then change the CUDA build rule to use
Tried with: CUDA 3.2 and Visual Studio 2008
