Drives me NUTS! All I want is a stand-alone compiler (compatable with
GCC)!!!! IF not Composer XE, then what is the Intel product I need? Or
maybe the above web page is out of date. Either way, I need to know for
SURE.Isn't the C++ compiler 64bit command line option open to this customer BUT still needs Microsoft SDK?

As I told, that new feature would be nice to see.
I have totwocomputers for stress-tests,a notebook with Pentium 4 CPUand a netbook withAtomN270 CPU, with a very limited resources and an installation of any Visual Studios is not an option.
But aconfiguration like MS Platform SDK vX ( as older as possible )plus Intel C/C++ compiler vYas aStandalone would work.
Adding more notes: if no any VS installed, the Intel C++ Composer's installation could continue as well but with a warning msg that you need to install the VS and config the command line script.
