Parallel studio xe 2016 installation problem: vtss and sepdrv3_15 not allowed

Hello all,

I've encoutered two error messages when I have installed parallel_studio_xe_2016.

Windows7 does not allow to install vtss.ys and sepdrv3_15.sys because they are not registered and Windows7 requires registered drivers only.

I would like to use fortran compiler with Visual studio 2015; Are these two drivers absolutely needed ? What will be the drawbacks or unexpected problems without these drivers ?

Where can I find these drivers ?

Thanks by advance.

Those drivers would be needed for full functionality in vtune but not otherwise for Fortran. If your organization has set a local administrator policy to block installation of those drivers, one would think you could ask those who set the policy.

I'm moving this question to the VTune Amplifier XE forum where VTune experts can comment further about the driver.

1. Open a cmd with administrator privilege 

2. Change directory to vtune-installation-dir\bin64

3. You can run amplxe-sepreg.exe with parameters, "-s" to check drivers' status, "-i" to install, "-u" to uninstall

Hey, Serge!  Check out this post at the top of the VTune Amplifier forum.  If you want to do hardware-based sampling, you need these drivers.
