I have a legacy app written in C++ with Visual Studio 6. It uses an older version of the MKL library.
The app is currently getting memory allocation errors from the MKL code when using FFT and IFFT (error code 1) (The input and output buffers are set to be the same to reduce the memory footprint). The data is around 344 MB. The app has other demands on memory.
I was hoping to test a newer version of the MKL to see whether it would work with this dataset.
Unfortunately, the new MKL library (the Release 11 Update 5), produces a load of linker errors (I'm linking against mkl_intel_c, mkl_sequential and mkl_core.
mkl_core.lib(psdftsfactca_w7---ownscDftOutOrdInv_Prime13_32fc_20121126.obj) : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol ___security_cookie
This is with Visual studio 6.0 so there's no /GS switch or BufferOverflowU.lib
Hi, have you tried the MKL Link Line Advisor?
This resource should help you alleviate any of those link errors you are getting. I would advise using the newest MKL library which would contain the memory fixes.
Yeah I tried that. Didn't work, still produced the same linker errors. Googling suggests that the intel libraries have been built with buffer overflow checks enabled. VS 6 doesn't support that (/GS switch).
We had similiar issue in IPP. please see
So you may try link dll mkl_*_dll.lib and see if it can work. Or try to build your project under release mode.
Anyway, you should have known that MKL don't support VS 6.0 for a long time, so a suggest may be if possible, upgrade the VS :).
