I suspect you are having some file write issues. The "Program Files" and "Program Files (x86)" directories in Windows 7 and Windows Vista are generally restricted to read-only access for security purposes (this is a Windows feature and has nothing to do with Intel IPP). Copy the samples into a project directory in your home directory (e.g. /users/myuserid/documents/ipp-samples) and try building them from there.
Or, download the samples directly from our web site for a more complete set of samples, and run the build scripts from the command-line. Make sure you keep the "ipp-samples" part of the directory structure, this is used by the build scripts to find supporting files. Samples can be downloaded from here:
Thanks for reply Paul. I moved the sampled to path with no spaces on another drive where permissions should not be problem : D:\dev\Samples\IntelIpp\Samples\ipp-samples\image-processing\image-processing-functions. Then I ran VS2010 as administrator just in case. However I still get same error.
Could it be Intel IPP ComposerXE-2011 can not handle being installed in Program Files (x86)? Or do I have something wrong with evironment paths or directory settings in VS?
Let me know what to try next, thanks.
