OpenMaXwell Downloads

Until 2013, I used the name OpenMaX, which conflicts with another popular software, OpenMAX. In order to avoid confusion, OpenMaXwell is used since 2014.

February 14, I installed MS Visual Studio 2010 and Intel Fortran Composer 2011. It seems that this solved many problems that could occur especially in 64 bit versions of OpenMaXwell. Therefore, I strongly recommend to download and use new versions. Unfortunately, this requires an additional DLL: libiomp5md.dll. This DLL should be contained in the Redistributable Libraries for the Intel Visual Fortan Compiler for Windows, which can be downloaded from Intel: Note that I used the complier version 11.1.070, i.e. most likely 11.1 update 7 on the Intel web site.
