starting a OpenCL project I got
Code Builder initialization failed:
Unable to load DLL 'KernelBuilderAPI.dll': The specified procedure could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007F)
Please help to fix it.
From the error message it seems that from some reason there is a missing dll in your platform.
The missing dll is NOT KernelBuilderAPI.dll but another dll which is required for loading the KernelBuilderAPI.dll
You can try one of the following to find out which dll is missing:
1. Run …\OpenCL SDK\bin\x86|x64\KernelBuilder32.exe from command line
2. If it still doesn’t give you the name of the missing dll run …\OpenCL SDK\bin\x86|x64\GPUhelper.exe from command line
3. If it still doesn’t give you the name of the missing dll try to install this tool: http://www.dependencywalker.com/. And run
depends "...\OpenCL SDK\bin\x86|x64\KernelBuilderAPI.dll"
When you have the name of the missing dll please post it in the forum so we can help fixing the issue.
option 1) & 2) don't work for me.
I did 3) dependencywalker:
In the case of KernelBuilderAPI.dll (x64) those dll's missing:
In the case x86 dll's missing:
Please see attached "dependency walker image" .
You're right, the missing dlls that dependencywalker specified are not the issue.
I notice that the error is not about missing dll but a missing procedure ("The specified procedure could not be found"). Sorry for the confusion.
My guess is that the OpenCL.dll that you have is 1.2 version when it should be 2.0.
Please do the following to check the version (see the attached picture):
1. Go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64
2. Right click on OpenCl.dll -> Properties -> Details and see the file version
3. If it is not 2.0 please copy it manually from: C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\OpenCL SDK\bin\icd\x86\OpenCL.dll
(It should be done by the SDK installer)
I'm running Visual Studio 2015 on a Window 7 Pro, SP1 (64 bit)
Processor: Intel Core I7-4800MQ CPU with 8GB ram
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 4600, driver version is 10.18.19.3412 (Jan 29, 2014)
I downloaded the OpenCL 2.0 sdk from "https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-opencl/download".
File downloaded is: "intel_sdk_for_opencl_setup_126.96.36.1999.exe".
I had exactly the same errors as peter b and followed all instructions including copying OpenCL.dll from the SDK directory to Windows\SysWOW64. However unlike peter b's happy ending, when I run Visual Studio it spits out an error: "Code Builder initialization failed: An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format.(Exception from HRESULT:0x8007000B)"
I don't even have any code that references the OpenCL dll yet (at least that I'm aware of).
I really only need OpenCL 2.0 runtime, but couldn't find where to download only the runtime verion.
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm STUCK.
OpenCL 2.0 is not support on Intel HD 4600.
It is supported on 5th generation of Intel® Core processors and later (you can see the full support matrix on our release notes: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/opencl-code-builder-release-notes)
You can work with the OCL2.1 experimental CPU only runtime that comes with the SDK – see more details here: https://software.intel.com/en-us/node/539396
Please try to install the latest SDK version (188.8.131.520) and see if you’re still getting these error messages.
Thanks for the info. I may try this later, but due to the project deadline, can't afford the time to use an experimental version. I'll be testing on a machine that has a GPU.
It would be convenient to be able to run on the machine that doesn't have one, but I just don't think I've got the time to troubleshoot.
When I do try it I'll let you guys know how it turned out.
