When compiling using the IPP threaded libraries I receive the linker error message:
“LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'threaded/ippcoremt.lib“
I have installed 'Intel C++ Studio XE 2013 SP1' together with Visual Studio 2010. The installation of the IPP threaded libraries was activated and they are completely present in the specific 'threaded' directory.
On my system the installation path is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\ipp\lib\ia32\threaded and C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\ipp\lib\intel64\threaded.
The Visual Studio Library Path settings is: $(ICLibDir);$(LibraryPath);$(IPPLibDir).
$(IPPLibDir) points to C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\ipp\lib\ia32
So all the paths are set correctly.
The header file 'ippcore.h' contains '#pragma comment( lib, "threaded/ippcoremt" )' what usually binds the correct threaded library 'ippcoremt.lib'
This means that the compiler and/or linker does not handle combined paths correctly inside a '#pragma comment(lib, ).
Does anybody have a solution?
I had a very similar problem with VS 2010, IPP 7.1 and Windows 7. VS 2010 wasn't able to recognize Windows 7 System Control Variables (IPPROOT, IPP_LIBRARY and IPP_INCLUDE).
But when I set all paths manually in PATH System Control Variable, everything became OK.
Has this been fixed and/or is there a workaround? The same linking problem exists in IPP 8.0u1 when using trying to use the threaded libraries (_IPP_PARALLEL_STATIC).
it is MSVC2010 issue: https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/596828
You can directly set library path and list of IPP libraries in linking string. We try to implement workaround in the next IPP release.
