Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit v. 2024.1 Error - 'mkl_blacs_ilp64.lib' cannot be opened

Hello,

When compile a C++ program in VS Pro 2022 with OneAPI Base Toolkit v. 2024.1, I encounter the following error:

fatal error LNK1104: mkl_blacs_ilp64.lib' can not be opened 

Looking into the folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\oneAPI\mkl\2024.1\lib, there is no such file but mkl_blacs_lp64_dll.lib.

Other files systematically have a .lib and a _dll.lib version, such as mkl_cdft_core.lib and mkl_cdft_core_dll.lib.

Is this a bug in the latest version ? Where I can download the missing file?

Repair tool does not help.

Thanks for your help,

More info : 

Although the "mkl_blacs_ilp64_file" variable in "CMakeSettings.json" was set to "mkl_blacs_ilp64_dll.lib", building stills looks for the file "mkl_blacs_ilp64.lib" which does not exist.

Is there anyone who can help me?

You might try to explicitly link against specific MPI libraries supported by windows version of oneMKL, which are

Intel MPI and MS MPI.

Please take a look at the MKL Linker Adviser:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/tools/oneapi/onemkl-link-line-advisor.html

 

for example for ILP64 API you need link against the following libs:

Intel IntelMPI:

mkl_intel_ilp64.lib mkl_intel_thread.lib mkl_core.lib mkl_blacs_intelmpi_ilp64.lib libiomp5md.lib impi.lib

 

MSMPI:

 mkl_intel_ilp64.lib mkl_intel_thread.lib mkl_core.lib mkl_blacs_msmpi_ilp64.lib libiomp5md.lib msmpi.lib

and also you could look at the Developer Guide for Windows

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/onemkl/developer-guide-windows/2024-1/linking-with-onemkl-cluster-software.html

where you could find out tips describing how to link with OneMKL Cluster Software.

Quote  " The BLACS library corresponding to your , programming interface (LP64 or ILP64), and MPI version. These libraries are listed in Appendix C: Directory Structure in Detail. For example, for the LP64 interface, choose one of mkl_blacs_intelmpi_lp64.lib, or mkl_blacs_msmpi_lp64.lib in the case of static linking and mkl_blacs_lp64_dll.lib in the case of dynamic linking. "
