Building a Custom Dynamic-link Library in the Visual Studio Development System

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I trying to build a custom DLL by following the instructions in https://software.intel.com/en-us/mkl-windows-developer-guide-building-a-custom-dynamic-link-library-in-the-visual-studio-development-system .

I get the following warning:

example.def(22): warning LNK4017: cblas_dgemm statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(23): warning LNK4017: cblas_sgemv statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(24): warning LNK4017: cblas_sgemm statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(25): warning LNK4017: LAPACKE_sgetrf statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(26): warning LNK4017: LAPACKE_sgetri statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(27): warning LNK4017: MKL_malloc statement not supported for the target platform; ignored
example.def(27): warning LNK4017: MKL_free statement not supported for the target platform; ignored

and it seems that the resulted dll doesn't contain these methods.

Thank you,

Shai

1/ yes, I see also some inconsistency when VS Solutions are used. We will take a look at this case.

2/ You may build the custom dll by using the command line. It works. Here is output I see on my side:

Thanks,
