C++ – LNK2038: mismatch detected for ‘RuntimeLibrary’: value ‘MT_StaticRelease’ doesn’t match value ‘MD_DynamicRelease’ in file.obj

ccudaMATLABvisual c++

I am Integrating Matlab, C and Cuda together in a project. I used Matlab mix in order to connect matlab mx function written in c with the cuda runtime library, a linking error appear about conflict in static release and dynamic release between the c file and the library. Can anyone solve this?

error LNK2038: mismatch detected for 'RuntimeLibrary': value 'MT_StaticRelease' doesn't match value 'MD_DynamicRelease' in file.obj.

This error can occur when you are statically linking your project with a library (typically a file with .lib extension) but the linker setting in your Visual Studio project are set to dynamically link (meaning the link will occur during runtime, usually with a .dll file).

To define that you need the project to use static linking start Visual Studio. In the Solution Explorer pane, right click the project name, and select Properties. Expand the properties as shown in the figure below: C/C++ --> Code Generation --> Runtime Library, select the Multi-threaded (/MT) option from the dropdown menu. enter image description here
