If your computer is not connected to the internet, you can still install CUDALink manually.

Please only install the CUDALink paclet manually if your computer does not have access to the internet.
  1. Download the latest CUDALink paclet file from the CUDA Resources page. Transfer this file to the computer on which you want to install the CUDALink paclet.
