Compile error with alteracl.lib using mingw-w64 on Windows 10

Hello! I am trying to compile an open-source project with the Intel OpenCL FPGA SDK 17.0 and an Arria 10 board on Windows 10 using mingw-w64. I got an error when the makefile run a command looks like: 

 

g++ ./host/main.o ../common/ocl_util.o ../common/timer.o -o run.exe -LC:/intelFPGA_pro/17.0/hld/board/a10_ref/windows64/lib -LC:/intelFPGA_pro/17.0/hld/host/windows64/lib -laltera_a10_ref_mmd -lalteracl -lacl_emulator_kernel_rt -lpkg_editor -llibelf -lacl_hostxml 

 

and I got an error saying like: 

 

C:/intelFPGA_pro/17.0/hld/host/windows64/lib/alteracl.lib(d:/SJ/nightly/17.0/290/w64/acds/hld/obj/windows64/acl/acl_program.obj):(.text[l_build_from_source_in_dir]+0xa2): undefined reference to `__imp__wassert' 

C:/intelFPGA_pro/17.0/hld/host/windows64/lib/alteracl.lib(d:/SJ/nightly/17.0/290/w64/acds/hld/obj/windows64/acl/acl_program.obj):(.text[l_load_binary_pkg]+0xb36): undefined reference to `__security_check_cookie' 

C:/intelFPGA_pro/17.0/hld/host/windows64/lib/alteracl.lib(d:/SJ/nightly/17.0/290/w64/acds/hld/obj/windows64/acl/acl_program.obj):(.xdata[$unwind$l_compute_hash]+0x10): undefined reference to `__GSHandlerCheck' 

(too long and get truncated; only repeating these 3 errors.) 

 

I google these errors and they turn out to be related to some MS Visual C++ libraries. I wonder if Visual Studio is the only way to go (can I still use mingw-w64?)? If mingw is OK, how can I fix these bugs? 

 

The link to the open-source project is posted here for your reference: https://github.com/doonny/pipecnn

 

Thanks in advance!!

I don't think you can use MinGW for this purpose. Altera/Intel only officially support MS Visual Studio on Windows. These libraries that are missing seem to be only provided by Visual Studio:

hi, 

 

If you do not want to purchase a costly VS2010, do consider to use the centos 6.8/6.9 as Gcc compiler do not need additional license. There is a plan to make vs2015 in the windows support list in the future but now still only with vs2010.

Thank you for the suggestion! I use reimp+dlltool to generate .a files from those .lib files and now the problem is solved. Here's the instruction I followed (in Chinese):

You can get reimp from here if you are interested:

Thank you for your advice! Is the OpenCL SDK for FPGA supported on centos 6.8? I thought it's supported on Redhat.

It is supported on both CentOS and RedHat 6.x.
