After a hard drive failed, I could not reinstall Parallel Studio XE on Windows 10 and Intel technical support did not help.
I have switched development to Clang and want to remove all traces of the Intel compiler and tools from the PC. As the uninstaller did not run properly, it has presumably clogged the registry and file system with the detritus of the dead installation.
How can I clean this from the PC completely?
I am loathe to use general-purpose registry cleaners.
Does Intel have a cleaning script or documentation of precisely what to clean manually?
As you already raised a ticket regarding this issue (04863966) and the engineer have replied to this same question you have asked there. Please refer to that answer.
I am grateful that someone from Intel is willing to engage constructively as the paid support service is not.
It gets further than the Parallel Studio XE installer did - it can use the C drive rather than insisting on the old D drive that is no longer present.
It seems to require something called oneAPI Base Toolkit and gives an error at the Prerequisites check stage. However, it continues past that point, integrates with VS2019.
Should I try the Parallel Studio XE 2020 installer now and hope this has changed the drive settings?
I wouldn't suggest trying to reinstall IPSXE2020 until you have a solution from your other ticket.
I am not sure which version of VS2019 you are using, but there are a few issues with IPSXE2020 Update 4 and latest VS2019.
In my opinion, if you have OneApi HPC toolkit installed, then use the C++ Compiler comes with it.
I tried reinstalling Parallel Studio XE onto a USB drive with the letter D in the hope that I would then be able to uninstall it cleanly.
It installed, but now if I run the uninstaller, it says "An error occurred while trying to uninstall Intel(R) Parallel Studio 2020 Update 4. It may have already been uninstalled" although it is installed and integrated with VS2019.
Is there a way to get this uninstalled again?
Glad your issue has been resolved.
