Is MSVS2012 a supported environment for MKL 11.0 update 5? I am trying to get MKL 11.0 update 5 working with Visual Studio 2012. To get my environment variables setup, I have followed the setup instructions here:
and I started following the instructions here:
However, when I right click on a C++ project in visual studio 2012, I do not have the "Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 -> Select Build Components" options. MSVS2012 does have the option "HELP -> Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 -> Intel C++ Composer XE Help", but I cannot find any of the select build components options that the tutorials use. Any help would be appreciated.
I'll double-check with the MKL engineering team. But according to the online document "Intel MKL 11.0 System Requirements" (http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-mkl-110-system-requirements/), MS Visual Studio 2012 is not on the list:
Supported C/C++ and Fortran compilers for Windows*:
I'm a bit confused about the different products here. Zhang Z. posted that Intel MKL does not have MSVS2012 listed as a supported product. However, Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 has MSVS2012 "standard edition or higher" listed as a supported product:
and on the main page for the C++ composer, it is stated that Intel MKL 11.0 is included with C++. If I install c++ composer xe 2013, will I be able to use version 11.0 of MKL with VS2012 integration?
The MKL engineering team has confirmed that VS 2012 is indeed supported by MKL 11.0. The product validation was actually done using VS 2012 on Windows platforms. It's a mistake of the Release Notes that it doesn't list VS 2012. We will get it fixed.
To use Intel C++ Composer XE (including MKL) with VS 2012, please first try to start VS 2012 by choosing Start Menue -> Programs -> Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 -> Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 with VS 2012. Then, once you open your solution and right-click your project, you will be able to see the "Intel Composer XE 2013" option.
I'm not sure exactly what fixed it (I uninstalled the MKL and used Composer Intel64 instead, as well as restarting everything a few times), but now the GUI has the Intel compiler listed as an option when right-clicking on a c++ project.
Thank you for all the help! I've already got code that calls the MKL convolver and the fft code, your documentation has been a huge boon. I'll let you know if I have any more questions.
