One of our team members has installed Parallel Studio XE 2018 Professional Edition Update 4. (Compiler, VTune, Inspector, and Advisor), integrating into Visual Studio 2017. After installing the update, VTune is no longer in Visual Studio. There is no VTune button in the ribbon bar and VTune is not listed in the components in the VS Help drop-down.
Running a Repair did not change matters. Watching closely we saw the installer list VTune Graphical Interface as one of thee elements (151 or 152 of 179). We had previously (just days ago) received the stand-alone update for Vtune: VTune Amplifier 2018 Update 4. Running that produces the same empty result: After every sign of a successful VTune integration into VS 2017, it is not actually in VS..
Similar experiences? Any suggestions?
AS pointed out by somebody in this forum Intel specifies now for what version of VS its product is valid.
Due to the fact that Microsoft upgrades VS-17 very fast, you probably installed the PS on a non approved version of VS
That problem was related only (we thought) to the Fortran Expression Evaluator. There was no statement (that we were aware of) that the update to PS XE 2018 was limited to certain releases of VS.
Intel folks: Are you aware of the problem with VTune described in my earlier posting? Is Update 4 limited to only earlier versions of VS? If so, what is the cut-off?
