Hi all,

I am having some issues when using OpenCV 3.1.0 (x64) in Visual Studio 2013. Concretely, a Blue Screen with a Kernel Security Check message shows up when I try to use the T-API. Just reading a simple cv::UMat crashes everything, but if I don't use the T-API (i.e. using classic cv::Mat) everything runs well. I am guessing if it has to be with the GPU. I've got a NVIDIA GTX970m.

Do you know where the problem could be and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance.


As I said, just reading a simple cv::UMat crashes everything:

UMat img = imread("test_image.jpg").getUMat(ACCESS_READ);

after that line I get a bsod (I'm using Windows 10):

You should add an example code that reproduces the crash.

Hi, I thought no example was needed, since it's a general issue. Anyway, I have edited the post showing the line and the blue screen

Does this code crash also ?

cv::Mat matImg = cv::imread("test_image.jpg");
cv::UMat umatImg;

Yes, that crashed too... Don't worry, I already found the solution, it was a GPU driver problem. Thank you for your help anyway

I already found the solution, it was a GPU driver problem. The new version fixed this problem. Just need to update from 361.43 to 361.91.
