..program can't start because libiomp5md.dll is missing from your computer

..program can't start because libiomp5md.dll is missing from your computer

Using Visual Studio 2008, C++
Trying an "example" to test matrix inversion:

info = LAPACKE_zgesv( LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR, n, nrhs, a, lda, ipiv, b, ldb );

Seeking a static link.
Have pointed linkerto the libraries suggested in the user manual for Math Kernel Library
(mkl_intel_lp64.lib, mkl_intel_thread.lib, mkl_core.lib, libiomp5md.lib)

with help, got a good link.

run time problem .. can't load libiomp5md.dll

Do not know how to get the software to pick up this dll at run time.

Help! Stuck again. New user blues.

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

The folder with the required .dll must appear in PATH environment variable, if you're running from command line.

a couple of notes:for the version of MKL bundled with Intel Composer package,all threading libraries ( libiomp5*.libs ) were moved from \ia32\lib to the \lib\ia32 directory.So, if You have "run time problem .. can't load libiomp5md.dll",then you have to add the compiler's and mkl's dll directory to the your system's paths.Namely, for the Intel Composer XE 2011, it would be (for 32 bit case):<..\ComposerXE-2011\redist\ia32\mkl\> and <..\Intel\ComposerXE-2011\redist\ia32\compiler\>The same should be noted regarding 64-bit binaries.--Gennady

Gennady: Thanks,

You've pretty much got it.

I found an example in some old code that uses lots of dll's.An approach thatworked:
* define a "workingDirectory" (a convenience)
* put copies of needed dll's into it.
* for Visual Studio, under "Configuration properties -> Debugging" .. put in the path to the "working directory".

Just another setup thing .. hard to remember. This one was generic and not special for MKL(aside fromfinding the correct dll's).
