MKL wrappers in C# fails when LAPACK is called

Dear All, 

I am trying to create MKL wrapper for accessing LAPACK functions in C# (mainly those related to QR factorization). However, when I call the corresponding LAPACK function, the program just exits without any error message or sometimes gives BadImageFormatException exception.

I have tried to use the example (intel-mkl-c#-examples_02.zip (11.54 KB)) provided in: 

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-intel-mkl-in-your-c-program/

... and the same problem happens when the function below is called:

LAPACKNative.dgeev(ref c_jobvl, ref c_jobvr, ref n, a, ref lda, wr, wi, vl, ref ldvl, vr, ref ldvr,

 work1, ref lwork, ref info);

 

Currently, I am using a Win7 64 bits computer and I have tried to use both versions (32 and 64 bits) of the mkl_rt.dll (MKL ver 11.2). Attached you will find the solution that gives me the error. This uses the source code provided in the cited example. I have also tried with a sample solution provided by Gianluca G. and fails similarly. 

Kindly advise. Thank you in advance, Javier

Hi Goicox, 

I try the Test_lapack.exe in the debug folder. It seem work no problem.  i run it in command line as below, MKL 11.2.4 intel64.

Intel MKL FATAL ERROR: Cannot load mkl_intel_thread.dll.  

As you see, the mkl_rt.dll will depend on the other MKL dynamic library.  So we recommend put all of them together ( or keep same folder).   So i remove the mkl_rt.dll in your debug folder.  just use the all libraries in MKL folder.  it run as below. 

( one more comment,  maybe you can use the custom dll builder tool, which can build custom dll based on mkl static library, thus you don't need redistribute mkl dynamic library with your application. )

Dear Ying, 

Thank you very much for your help. I followed your instructions and new the test case is now working. :-) I did not know that the mkl_rt.dll depended on other  dlls

Regards, Javier
