Where are all the .dll files located?

Where are all the .dll files located?

I just bought the Intel Composer XE 2013 which contains MKL libraries, I just installed it into a Windows server 2008 machine.

I´m writting a program that loads dynamically(LoadLibrary()) MKL libraries, but in order to do so I need to use mkl_rt.dll file, I'm able to locate the mkl_rt.lib file, but no .dll, actually I just noticed that inside MKL_HOME/lib/intel64 directory, there is not even one .dll file, I've also searched for any .dll file inside MKL_HOME directory without success.

Are the .dll files being installed in some other directory?

Here is the list of the files inside MKL_HOME/lib/intel64

[C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013\mkl\lib\intel64]ls
mkl_blacs_ilp64_dll.lib mkl_cdft_core.lib mkl_intel_thread_dll.lib mkl_scalapack_lp64_dll.lib
mkl_blacs_intelmpi_ilp64.lib mkl_cdft_core_dll.lib mkl_lapack95_ilp64.lib mkl_sequential.lib

Did you check the PATH which is set up when you open the compiler command prompt window? That (PATH settings from compilervars.bat) is the supported way of getting the dlls on PATH.  How about the \redist\intel64\mkl\ folder in the compiler installation?

Hi Tim,

Thanks, I just found the mkl_rt.dll file inside COMPOSER XE 2013\redist\intel64\mkl.

That's correct. Also, all 32-bit MKL DLLs are located in: [ ICCInstallDir ]\Redist\Ia32\Mkl

>>...I´m writting a program that loads dynamically ( LoadLibrary() ) MKL libraries...

That solution is working for 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs and I use it most of the time ( it is more flexible ). MKL DLLs could be changed any time and there is No need to recompile an application.
