If have a few questions regarding deployment of MKL compiled/linked software.
As part of our software, we are using a third-party (Academic) application in one of our processes. The application is an Academic PoC process that uses MKL, and I am a bit confused about shipping our solution and cannot find definative information for deployment so any help would be appreciated.
We are working with the university, and the process we are using is hopefully soon to be published, however in the meantime they have provided the executable which is spawned as part of our pipeline so we didn't write it and it is in esscence a black-box for us. We don't intend to build the application as part of our build chain, so don't require the API. The executable they have provided is (as my understanding) statically linked with MKL, and so I would have thought not required any other dlls/runtime. Is this the case?
As I understand it we can use MKL in a commercial application according to the ISSL (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/license/onemkl-license-faq.html). However for deployment we would only like to distribute a runtime and not the entire API. Is this possible? And if so is there a redistributable which can be incorporated into an installer?
All the downloads I have so far come across mention a lic file. Is the licensing implied, or should a license be obtained from intel? If the latter, is this required for our end users to obtain?
Thank you for posting on Intel communities.

>>Yes, Redist Libs only have dynamic libraries, not static and are present under the below path. Kindly get back to us with more details so that it would help us in understanding your query.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\oneAPI\mkl\2022.1.0\redist
We would like to suggest you post the license-related query which you have in the below forum.
