How can I start using clAmdBLAS from MAGMA?

I would like to use the OpenCL version of MAGAMA(clAmdBlas_1.10.274.exe) for LU decomposition and lu back-substitution in my program for the Matrix inverse.

I am using AMD Opetron, Radeon 6900 series. Windows Server.

I have downloaded the sample "LUDOpenCLBLAS-Windows"

How can I make it run. First of all I need to install clAmdBLAS.

and after that where should i extract this sample folder, can you please paste the exact location in c drive?

or the steps in changing the AMDAPPSDKSAMPLESROOT to where i have extracted the sample folder.

IIRC, you need not modify that environment variable, and need to set a variable related to clAmdBlas. But that should also be happening within the executable. Can you just try running the executable LUDOpenCLBLAS in a terminal. Also try opening the VS solution file and compile it. You can check the new environment variable in the project properties.
