    clAmdFft.runtime linking errors in Windows 8.1




      I'm writing a Java JNI wrapper for the AMD FFT library and have run into a problem under Windows 8.1 that doesn't show up in Windows 7. 

      The code works perfectly under Windows 7, but when I try to load the library in Java, it says there is a linking error; here is what I've tried to do on my end:

      1.) Recompile the .dll file in Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 with only linking to the libraries needed which are: JNI.lib, clAmdFft.runtime.lib, and opencl.lib, ignoring all other libraries

      2.) Try compiling the .dll using MinGW x64 variant

      3.) Google, which brought me to a forum over on the Microsoft Community: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-performance/32-bit-application-fails-to-start-after-81-upgrade/b825723e-e2a2-4c8f-bd1f-10446a5d7059

      4.) Run dependency walker and tracked the issue (I think) to clAmdFft.runtime.dll.  The missing dependencies on on Windows 8.1 are

           a.)  API-MS-WIN-SERVICE-PRIVATE-L1-1-1.dll

           b.) API-MS-WIN-CORE-KERNEL32-PRIVATE-L1-1-1.DLL


           d.) API-MS-WIN-CORE-SYNCH-L1-1-0.DLL


      Is there any way to check this on y'alls end?  Again, everything works perfectly in Windows 7.
