By Yang Wang, Published: 12/27/2011, Last Updated: 12/27/2011

Reference Number :  DPD200148838

Version : 11.1.054

Product : 
    Intel C/C++ Compiler Pro Edition for Windows
    Intel Fortran Compiler Pro Edition for Windows

Operating System :  Windows

Problem Description : 
When upgrade the windows compiler to 11.1.054, the OPENMP application may report the following warning/error:
OMP: Warning #2: Cannot open message catalog "1041\libiomp5ui.dll":
OMP: System error #126: Could not find the specified module.
OMP: Info #3: Default messages will be used.
The condition causing the application to always emit these OMP messages involves building the OMP application on an English Windows system and then executing the program on a non-English Windows system.

Resolution Status : 
You may workaround this issue by setting the environment variable KMP_WARNINGS to 0, or call kmp_set_warnings_off() in the initialization part of your application explicitly to close the warning.

The issue has been fixed in the compiler Update 6 release. Please download the new compiler Update6 release for the fix.
