OpenCL Tools for Visual Studio


I use Visual Studio 2019 and Intel System Studio 2019 Update4 on windows 10. 
My machine has Intel Core i7-6700K CPU, Intel® HD Graphics 530 and AMD discrete graphics card
(AMD FirePro W7100). 
My display is connected to AMD discrete card, it is therefore possible to debug OpenCL kernel with only one machine.
I have few questions:
Does Intel OpenCL™ Tools for Visual Studio work with Visual Studio 2019?
Does GPU Kernel Debugger on Microsoft Windows* OS work with Visual Studio 2019?
Actually I need recommendations for debugging OpenCL kernel on Windows 10 OS. ( for Intel and AMD) 
Please Advice,

Hi MichaM,

Thanks for raising this question and the continued interest.

Developers in need of the OpenCL developer tools are advised to use them under Visual Studio 2017. Unfortunately, the current Intel® SDK for OpenCL Applications 2019 Update 4 developer plugins do not interface with VIsual Studio 2019. We will look to update guidance and documentation to reflect this shortly.

These developer tools leverage the Intel® System Studio 2019 install infrastructure, which does have other components performing IDE integration. Setup tools may expose checkboxes for Visual Studio 2019 integration but unfortunately that does not apply for the OpenCL development tools from Intel.

I expect this gap to be communicated in an errata type area of release notes, given the nature of the installer.
