TBB Cmake error in example in Mingw

Dear experts,

I am now introducing Intel TBB in the cmake build system of Mingw compiler.

I tried the procedure similar to the below URL item "Source code integration of Intel TBB to the sub_string_finder sample (Linux* OS)"<>

To build TBB library is succeeded in cmake generation,

but in "make" process, I failed linking as the below log.

I would appreciate it if you could help me.


Best regards

TBB library is successfully made (.o & .d files, they correctly worked in ordinary tutorial case without cmake). 

Probably, Makefile is configured for MSVS compiler since ***.lib is windows static library format.

If you know how to cope with this case, please tell me.


Best regards



Dear all,

Is there anyone succeed to use TBB in mingw with cmake build system?

The above error log, No rule to make target 'tbb_cmake_build/tbb_cmake_build_subdir_debug/tbb_debug.lib, 

means the Makefile produced by cmake indicates to link XXX.lib, that is, static library file in the format of Windows.

In TBB, libraries are output as the format of XXX.o etc, which probably is something of linux object files.

As default in Windows OS, cmake is planned to produce linkage with static library of XXX.lib?


Best regards








Dear all,

I resolved this problem by no use of the tbb_build procedure.

(TBB library is in advance built, and link them directly by cmake command, "link_directory" and "target_link_libraries" with linker options, -ltbb)
