Problems calling Fortran library from C (and Fortran)

I have a very old library that I don't have its source code. This library was written in FORTRAN and it was compiled using Open Watcom (OW) compiler.

I am trying to port it to Intel and I did the following steps:

1) At first, I tried to link it directly using Intel and I got the following messages:

ipo: warning #11010: file format not recognized for oldlibrary.lib...oldlibrary.lib: fatal error LNK1136: invalid or corrupt file

recent releases and vista support

I have a couple of questions regarding the recent July and October releases. The July release states "Support for the following versions of Windows has been dropped: ... Windows Vista* ... Support for Windows XP* has been deprecated" The October release states that "Microsoft Windows XP* SP3," is supported" and then goes on to say "Support for Microsoft Windows XP* is deprecated – a future major release of Intel® Visual Fortran Composer XE will not support Windows XP" As I have 3 Vista development systems the implication from the release notes is that I need to upgrade Windows to 7 or 8.

Link MKL Library


I am trying to use the MKL library function GEMM in my code by adding the line INCLUDE "" and compliling with option /Qmkl in commandline. I am getting the error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol _GEMM. Am I missing anything? However, I tried to use VSCBRT function with appropriate include file, and it works. Please help.

  • Three NFC news items caught my attention - Periodicals by Sunil (#1)

    Greetings everyone,

    Through a series of blogs and dialogues here, my goal is to weave a community of bright developers who are willing to collaborate cross domains to deliver end-to-end Near Field Communication (NFC) usages.

    Three NFC news items recently caught my attention, and I’ll like to hear your perspective on each.

    A)      Lastest iPhone didn’t launch with NFC as a feature

    B)      NFC Forum reorganized its Eco-System committee into several vertical SIGs

    installation problem: still error #7002 for IMSL library


    I just installed Microsoft Visual Studio for Windows and IMSL libraries. I followed the article "Installing and using the IMSL* Libraries", icluded paths for both Icludes and Librarires for both 32 and 64 architectures. Also included

    INCLUDE 'link_fnl_static.h'
    !DEC$ OBJCOMMENT LIB:'libiomp5md.lib'

    in the main program. Checked the folders: IMSL files are there.

    Still get error #7002. Please help. 


    Congrats Microsoft on Windows 8!

    Here we are on the eve of Windows 8 and I want to reach out to my former friends & co-workers still there to wish them all a huge Congratulations!  

    Getting an OS out the door is a monumental task (Akin to eating a Kraken!) and something that I don't believe most people can fully appreciate unless they saw and experienced it first hand.  So in all seriousness my hats off to everyone over there right now.  Bottoms up!  You all deserve to blow off some steam!  : )
