Setting Environment Variables

When the installation of Intel IPP is complete, set the environment variables in the command shell using one of the script files in the
env
subdirectory of the Intel IPP installation directory:
On Windows* OS:
vars.bat
for the IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures.
On Linux* OS:
vars.sh
for the IA-32 and Intel® 64 architectures.
When using the
vars
script, you need to specify the architecture as a parameter. For example:
  • vars.bat ia32
    sets the environment for Intel IPP to use the IA-32 architecture on Windows* OS.
  • . vars.sh intel64
    sets the environment for Intel IPP to use the Intel® 64 architecture on Linux* OS.
The scripts set the following environment variables:
