error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol _intel_fast_memset
We have added the \\Intel\\Composer XE 2011 SP1\\compiler\\lib\\intel64 directory to the linker.
There'sprobably a simple solution, but right now we can't resolve it. Any ideas?
Did you try to add a 'libiomp5m*.lib'library? You need to look for a 64-bit corresponding version.
Take a look at a description for 'LNK2001' error on MSDN.Shortly, this is what it says:
Code references something (such as a function, variable, or label) that the linker can't find in the libraries and object files.
Try to add it to the linker explicitely to see if it fixes the issue.
I did a quick check and I can see that the function is in many Intel libraries. Just for information here is a complete list:
[cpp]libbfp754.lib libchkpwrap.lib libchkpwrapmd.lib libiomp5mt.lib Not applicable in 'warp69' case. Sorry, I was wrong when suggested it libiompprof5mt.lib libirc.lib Applicable in 'warp69' case libircmt.lib libmatmul.lib[/cpp]Best regards,
I added the libircmt.lib to the 64bit build settings and it works of course - /ZI was added to the project.
Some people have experienced unexpected results or crashes with the code and after a lot of investigation - In every single case, they used AMD CPU's (Phenom II 965 etc.). Those that have Intel CPU's doesn't have a single issue. Itried the Microsoft compiler for the critical parts for testing and all the issues went away.
Any hintsfor any settings that might increase the compatibilityfor AMD CPU's?
Thanks in advance.
I doubt if any architecture settings more aggressive than /arch:SSE3 /Qimf-arch-consistency:true have been tested on AMD CPUs, as other options attempt to recognize and make use of characteristics of specific Intel CPU architectures.
I can only guess that you mean improving compatibility compared with default options. In that case, depending on the requirements of your source code, you would consider /fp:source as well as /Qimf-arch-consistency:true
