Kernel Builder Error: Failed to Create Context for OpenCL MIC device.

Hi, 

I am trying to use the Kernel Builder to build a kernel for the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. However, I keep getting the following messages in the log: 

Using default insturtcion set architecture.

Failed to create context for Intel OpenCL MIC device...

Build Failed!

I am not quite sure of what I am doing wrong or if I am missing something. 

Thanks, 

Sumedh

Which version of the SDK is installed on your machine? which Runtime version?

Thanks.

Hi Sumedh, In addition to question from Arik I'd like to ask if you are able to run successfully any OpenCL sample/application on Xeon Phi? Just to be sure that this is Kernel Builder related issue and not something else. Yuri

I am sorry for this super late reply. I am using OpenCL-1.2-3.0.67279. How do i find which runtime version is installed on my system?

Also, I was am able to compile and run the same code on Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor without any trouble. I am just unable to get the code to compile with the Kernel Builder. 

Another thing that I noticed is that this time when I use the Kernel Builder (3.0.0.1) the warnings changed a bit from my last post. Since this a shared system, I am unsure if anyone updated the system. Now the errors look like this : 

Setting target instruction set architecture to: Default

Intel OpenCL Xeon Phi Coprocessor device was found!

Failed to context's devices...

Build Failed!

Thanks a lot for your help.
