Linking with System Libraries

If your system is based on the Intel® 64
architecture, be aware that Microsoft SDK builds 1289 or higher provide the
bufferoverflowu.lib
library to resolve the  
__security_cookie
external references. Makefiles for examples and tests include this library by using the
buf_lib=bufferoverflowu.lib
macro. If you are using older SDKs, leave this macro empty on your command line as follows:
buf_lib=
.

Product and Performance Information

1

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.
