MS-MPI binary (ABI) compatibility between versions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is MS-MPI version 9 binary compatible with version 8? Can a .lib compiled with v8 be statically linked with v9 into an exectuable, and then the executable run with mpirun from v9?

  • Hello,

    we do not guarantee ABI compatibility. You can always download the particular version of msmpi (8, 8.1 or 8.1.1) from Microsoft Download Center and go with it.

    -thanks, Anna
