On, it is claimed that:

Important: Please note that the Intel MKL version of PARDISO is based on our version from 2006 and that a lot of new features and improvements of PARDISO are not available in the Intel MKL library.

That's correct. The release of PARDISO* 4.0.0 from the University of Basel (UB) is not backward compatible with PARDISO from the Intel® Math Kernel Library 10.3 (Intel® MKL). See the summary of the API differences between University of Basel (UB) PARDISO* and Intel® MKL PARDISO follow this link. This article should be updated accordingly the latest ( MKL 11.3 and 2017) versions of Intel MKL Pardiso. We will do that.
