Affected products: Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016, 2017 or 2018; Intel® System Studio 2016, 2017
Visual Studio versions: all supported Visual Studio, see Intel C++ Compiler Release Notes for details.
Compilation of application with use of Intel® Performance Libraries by Intel® C++ Compiler fails in Microsoft* Visual Studio and produces the warnings like:
“Could not expand [MKL|TBB|DAAL|IPP] ProductDir variable. The registry information may be incorrect." (or) "Could not expand [MKL|TBB|DAAL|IPP] ProductDir variable. Corresponding version of Intel(R) [MKL|TBB|DAAL|IPP] is not installed or the registry information may be incorrect."
There can be two root causes:
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
