I am trying to use PARDISO in Matlab on windows. I notice that some compile options may not availible for windows system. This is my building script for pardisofree.mexw64 as an example.
mex -largeArrayDims -lpardiso -lmwlapack -lmwblas ...
-LD:\IntelSWTools\parallel_studio_xe_2019.0.045\compilers_and_libraries_2019\windows\compiler\lib\intel64_win -lifcoremt ...
-LD:\zw\matlab\PARDISO\pthreads-w32-2-9-1-release\Pre-built.2\lib\x64 -lpthread ...
-lm -output pardisofree ...
common.cpp matlabmatrix.cpp sparsematrix.cpp pardisoinfo.cpp pardisofree.cpp
I have installed the intel parallel XE to get the windows version of gfortran, as lifcoremt.lib.
I also download pthread for windows version from sourceforge
So the command above runs ok for me. But I still have any way to activate the multithreads. I got no examples for that. How to build a matlab file to check it? Do I need to compile OPENMP into it? Any suggestion would be appreciated. I am really confused in this process.

@Jeremy Hu I also tryied to add "openmp" into compile. This my entire build code for all the files. You may need this.
filename = {'pardisoinit.cpp','pardisoreorder.cpp','pardisofactor.cpp','pardisosolve.cpp','pardisofree.cpp'};
intel_lib_path = '-LD:\IntelSWTools\parallel_studio_xe_2019.0.045\compilers_and_libraries_2019\windows\compiler\lib\intel64_win';
pthread_lib_path = '-LD:\zw\matlab\PARDISO\pthreads-w32-2-9-1-release\Pre-built.2\lib\x64';
for i=1:length(filename)
mex('COMPFLAGS="$COMPFLAGS /openmp"',...
'-lm', '-output',filename{i},...
'common.cpp', 'matlabmatrix.cpp', 'sparsematrix.cpp', 'pardisoinfo.cpp', filename{i})
Unfortunately, Matlab still crash when I set the iparm[2] = 2 in the pardisoinfo.cpp, no matter before or after pardisoinit_ line. If I set the iparm[2] = 1, I could run the example m file welll. I guess the problem may from OMP_NUM_THREADS. But I don't know how to set it up.

@Wei Zhang, Thank you! I wasn't able to move past compilation unfortunately, so I don't know how to set up the OMP_NUM_THREADS either. Maybe you can use loadlibrary instead of MEX.

@Jeremy Hu What do you mean by "move past compilation"? Try clear functions to remove the mex in memory.
