NMAKE unresolved external symbols

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm playing around with the custom dll builder tool (windows\mkl\tools\builder) to make a stdcall BLAS dll for Win32.

I'm using blas_stdcall_example_list provided in the same directory, with the following command:

nmake libia32 export=blas_stdcall_example_list interface=stdcall name=mkl_blas_stdcall

Should I be doing anything differently?




C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.109\windows\mkl\tools\builder>nmake libia32 export=blas_stdcall_example_list interface=stdcall name=mkl_blas_stdcall

Dear customer,

I wonder did you changed the link line in makefile? The root cause is lack of mkl_intel_c.lib. I checked with your link line, seems you only link with mkl_intel_s but no mkl_intel_c. You could modify the makefile like before:

IFACE_LIB_32=mkl_intel_c.lib
IFACE_LIB_32_DLL=mkl_intel_c_dll.lib

!if "$(interface)"=="std" || "$(interface)"=="stdcall" || "$(interface)"=="STD" || "$(interface)"=="STDCALL"
IFACE_LIB_32=$(IFACE_LIB_32) mkl_intel_s.lib
IFACE_LIB_32_DLL=$(IFACE_LIB_32_DLL) mkl_intel_s_dll.lib
!endif
....

Like above, the  default interface layer lib is mkl_intel_c.lib, while you specify the interface as stdcall, both mkl_intel_c & mkl_intel_s will be used to link.

Best regards,
Fiona

Hi,

It worked! Thank you so much.

But, no, I used the original makefile as is. The code (which I now have commented out and used yours instead) is exactly this:

 

IFACE_LIB_32=mkl_intel_c.lib
IFACE_LIB_32_DLL=mkl_intel_c_dll.lib

!if "$(interface)"=="std" || "$(interface)"=="stdcall" || "$(interface)"=="STD" || "$(interface)"=="STDCALL"
IFACE_LIB_32=mkl_intel_s.lib
IFACE_LIB_32_DLL=mkl_intel_s_dll.lib
!endif

Dear Mikhail,

Oh, indeed. IFACE_LIB_32 has been replaced only link to mkl_intel_s. I think you are using MKL 2017 gold. This problem has been fixed since 2017 update 1. Thanks. 

Best regards,
Fiona
