array<int,1> deviceArray(dataVector.size(),dataVector);



   parallel_for_each(deviceArray.extent,[&](index<1> idx) restrict(amp)


       // Long running computation


    dataVector = deviceArray;


catch(accelerator_view_removed& ex)

    Hi Pavan, glad to find your blog here.

    I have a program which works fine on my W520 with Q2000M. However, it doesn't on my GTX480.

    on GTX480, it works with less data, such as 100000. when i want to work on 200000, it failed when trying copy data from device to host.

    i saw it was Concurrency::accelerator_view_removed error. and i used your method to catch it, it tells "failed to create constant buffer".

    do you have any idea about it, please?

    I used before, it just failed and it just told Timeout error. you can see the disscussion here:…/471390
