Hi, I run your code, I got the good result with code. A(1,1) 3.31662479035540 REAL(8) A(2,1) -1.50755672288882 REAL(8) A(3,1) 0.904534033733291 REAL(8) A(4,1) 0.603022689155527 REAL(8) A(1,2) -5.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(2,2) 3.27525155175488 REAL(8) A(3,2) 1.63762577587744 REAL(8) A(4,2) -1.55435666862943 REAL(8) A(1,3) 3.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(2,3) 4.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(3,3) 3.53553390593274 REAL(8) A(4,3) 2.54558441227157 REAL(8) A(1,4) 2.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(2,4) -6.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(3,4) 7.00000000000000 REAL(8) A(4,4) 3.12095161498073 REAL(8) The problem there may be relatd to the project setting? What is the compiler you are using? If you set the first one: Fortran => Libraries => Use Intel Math Kernel Library = Sequential The last one is not needed any more: Fortran => Libraries => Use Intel Math Kernel Library = Sequential Also, you upload the whoe project, it may help to have further check. Thanks, Chao Employee

The code posted by Schulzey merits a couple of comments.

First of all, the dpotrf routine is appropriate to use only if the matrix A is positive-definite -- it is necessary but not sufficient that A be symmetric. The particular matrix values do satisfy this requirement.

Secondly, only the lower triangle of A is used if the first argument passed to the routine dpotrf is 'L'. What is contained in the upper triangular part, not including the main diagonal, is immaterial. Therefore, there is no need for the "make it symmetrical" part of the posted code. It would be more efficient to fill in only the lower triangle of A if the intent is to call dpotrf with 'L' as the first argument. New Contributor I

Thanks guys, I started a new project and now it's working properly. I must have had a setting in Visual Studio that was stopping it.
