-I do compile cycles standalone myself. But that's on my workstation. Doing
that on Azure VM will be kind of difficult (installing visual studio etc in
VM) . 

-The Cycles executable I am using on Azure VM was built/compiled from 1.7.0
d83e-5482-46bf-aaa9-f8d63c870dc6>  from Cycles repository

-The cubin files was copied from   blender-2.78-62a2ed9-win64.zip on


I am not sure the blender zip I copied the file from and the cycles commit I
built the cycles from match or not. Please tell me which version of blender
I should copy from for cycles built from 1.7.0 tag from cycles repository.
Also is there any standard way to determine which cycles commit matches
which blender build version ?


Also it would be great if someone can publish cycles standalone releases
(executables) for every blender releases. The executables which works with
all ranges of CUDA devices.
