Program can’t start because libiomp5md is missing

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi experts,


X64 code with /debug:parallel links against x86 Parallel Debugging DLL (PDBX.dll) Developing under Win7 Pro x64 + VS 2008 Pro. If I enable /debug:parallel in my x64 program, it crashes with: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application If I check my exe with Dependency Walker, I see that it has linked against the x86 PDBX.dll and x86 LIBIOMP5MD.DLL. Obviously this leads to the crash. I've uninstalled, reinstalled all of VS and Parallel Studio (sp1, composer update 4). How can I fix this? Have any idea?



Error: The program can't start because libiomp5md.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.

The solution is simple, verify if the "[intelc-install-dir]libia32" and "[intelc-install-dir]libia64" are added to "path" variable of the system, if not add them.

Also, if by some chance you have set up "Configuration Properties-> Debugging -> Merge Environment" as 'No', then the same error is also thrown for some operating system. So change it and try if the error still persists.
