Had to replace my desktop and restart all installations.
With VS 2015 installed, I proceeded to reinstall Intel MKL Libraries and Intel MPI Libraries.
The "magic" of the properties selection "Intel Peformance Libraries" is not present as it was in the old install.
I am at a loss at either:
(1) How to recover the :magic" or
(2) How to manually specify the libraries need to link (I have kept on added libraries to the Link.Input properties only to continue to get more unresolved references)
Any advise is appreciated,
Are we talking about the current version (2017) of MKL, or an earlier version? Not all versions of MKL and C compilers are compatible with VS2015.
You can try the /Qmkl compiler option if you are using either Intel C or Intel Fortran to build. If you use another compiler, you will have to add the correct directory of the MKL-header files to %INCLUDE%.
For linking, you can find out a suitable combination of options with the help of the MKL link-line-advisor at https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor .
Intel MKL 2017 is compatible with VS2015.
You may refer to https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-mkl/documentation for installing MKL 2017.
Like what mecej4 said, you may use https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-link-line-advisor to help you link your application to MKL, or use custom library tool provided by MKL to make your customized MKL library.
