Build and Run a Sample Project Using the
Visual Studio*
Command Line

Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit
If you have not already configured your development environment, go to Configure Your System then return to this page. If you have already completed the steps to configure your system, continue with the steps below.
To compile and run a sample:
  1. Locate a sample project using the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser.
  2. Build and run a sample project using
    Microsoft Build*
    .

Download Samples using the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser

Use the oneAPI CLI Samples Browser to browse the collection of online oneAPI samples. As you browse the oneAPI samples, you can copy them to your local disk as buildable sample projects. Most oneAPI sample projects are built using Make or CMake, so the build instructions are included as part of the sample in a README file. The oneAPI CLI utility is a single-file, stand-alone executable that has no dependencies on dynamic runtime libraries.
An internet connection is required to download the samples for oneAPI toolkits. For information on how to use this toolkit offline, see Developing with Offline Systems in the Troubleshooting section.
To watch a video presentation of how to create a project with the command line, see Exploring Intel® oneAPI Samples from the Command Line.
The oneAPI CLI Samples Browser does not work with system proxy settings and does not support WPAD proxy. If you have trouble connecting from behind a proxy, please see Troubleshooting.
  1. Create a folder where you want to store your sample. For example,
    C:\samples\vector-add
  2. Open a
    command
    window.
  3. Set
    system variables by
    running
    setvars:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\oneAPI\setvars.bat"
    The command above assumes you installed to the default folder. If you customized the installation folder,
    setvars.bat
    is in your custom folder.
    The
    setvars.bat
    script can be managed using a configuration file, which is especially helpful if you need to initialize specific versions of libraries or the compiler, rather than defaulting to the "latest" version. For more details, see Using a Configuration File to Manage Setvars.bat.
    See
    oneAPI Development Environment Setup for more configuration options.
  4. In the same
    command
    window, run the application :
    oneapi-cli.exe
    The oneAPI CLI menu appears:
  5. Use the up and down arrow keys to select
    Create a project
    , then press
    Enter
  6. Move the arrow key down to select
    Create a project
    , then press
    Enter
    . The language selection will appear. If you want to run samples from a toolkit other than the
    Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit
    , install the domain-specific toolkit before proceeding.
  7. Select the language for your sample. For your first project, select
    cpp
    , then press
    Enter
    . The toolkit samples list appears.
  8. Select the
    Vector Add
    sample. Vector Add is a simple test application that will help verify that the tools are setup correctly and can access your system's GPU:
  9. After you select a sample, press
    Enter
    .
  10. Specify the location for the project. The default location includes the path from where the utility was run and the name of the project.
  11. Press
    Tab
    to select Create, then press
    Enter
    :

Build and Run a Sample Using Microsoft Build*

  1. Using the same command prompt window where you ran
    setvars.bat
    , navigate to the folder where you downloaded the sample (where the .sln file is located).
  2. Build the program:
    MSBuild vector-add.sln /t:Rebuild /p:Configuration="Release"
  3. Navigate to the Release folder (example:
    x64/Release
    )
  4. Run the program:
    vector-add-buffers.exe
A
success
message will appear:
If
Running on Device
shows a GPU and an error occurs, see the Troubleshooting tip for fixing a SPIRV Error.
