Background

Visual Studio 2010 Professional is the Visual Studio 2010 edition which is supported by Rogue Wave Software. Users have inquired whether Visual Studio 2010 Express can be used with IMSL C Numerical Library.

Although initial success, with limitations, has been shown when using Visual Studio 2010 Express it is recommended that users purchase the Visual Studio 2010 Profession Edition.

Limitations

1. Only 32-bit development is supported by Visual Studio 2010 Express. Therefore users can only use the 32-bit version of the IMSL C Numerical Library.
2. Because the static OpenMP runtime libraries are not provided in the Express edition only the DLL version of the IMSL C Numerical Library can be used.
3. Because the static debug libraries are not provided in the Express edition all development with the IDE must be done in Release mode.

Procedure

1. Download and install Visual Studio 2010 Express.
2. Download and install the runtime redistributables pointed to by http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...3-37bf0912db84
