Linking Abaqus 6.12-3 + VS 2012 pro+ Intel Compose XE 2013

Hi there,


Recently I had lots of problem with linking ABAQUS and Fortran compiler together. I did all of the things which has been described in forums but none of them worked for me. Finally I found the solution.

I'm using ABAQUS 6.12-3, Visual Studio 2012 Professional and Intel Composer XE Suites 2013. For linking them simply follow these steps:

1- find the file ifortvars.bat and its path.

2- startmenu --> Programas -->  right click on ABAQUS Command -->  Shortcut --> add the path of ifortvars.bat file inside of quotation mark to the very end of the target --> make an space and add this: intel64 vs2012 -->save and exit.

in my case it is: "C:\Program FIles (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\bin\ifortvars.bat" intel64 vs2012


I hope this method works for you as well.




You can also add "C:\Program FIles (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\bin\" to enviroment variables's "path", then use "ifortvars.bat intel64 vs2012" .

I detailed the step in ( 

Oh silly me, you are Ashkan! Glad to see you solved it, I was just replying your post in another topic, lol. 

Dear tem5221,

I have Intel Parallel Studio 2013installed i=on my computer. I found that it contains MKL which has BLAS and LAPACK libraries in it.

In my UEL I'm trying to use some of MKL and LAPACK functions. When I'm trying to run it (abaqus job=test user=test1 int) I'm getting this error message:

LNK2019: unresolved external symbol dgemm referenced in function uel

LNK1120: unresolved externals

To me, it seems that the problem is in linking between ABAQUS, MKL and LAPACK. If I'm right, would you please let me know how I can resolve it?

Best Regards,
