libmkl_blacs_ilp64.a

I'm trying to link to a commercial software (MSC.Marc 2016) using the 2017 Intel MKL/Fortran compiler/C compiler and I get the error that /opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries/linux/mkl/lib/intel64_lin/libmkl_blacs_ilp64.a is missing.

It turns out that the file exits in the 2016 version

/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2016.0.109/linux/mkl/lib/intel64_lin# ls -la *libmkl_blacs*

but in 2017 it is missing

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  270291 Aug  1 19:05 libmkl_blacs_sgimpt_lp64.so

Did I forget to select a certain installation option, or has the file been removed totally?

Many thanks for any hints

These libraries ( libmkl_blacs_ilp64.a as well as libmkl_blacs_lp64.a )  were announced as deprecated in 11.3 - Please see the MKL user's guide and RN for MKL 2017 for reference. Since MKL 2017 we provide libmkl_blacs_(intelmpi, openmpi, sgimpi)_ilp64.a instead.

Thanks, I've adjusted the link line according to https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-math-kernel-library/topic/698061 and now it works.
