After installing the XE 2016 beta, Visual Studio 2015 Community RC fails to load properly. In the log the following issue is reported:
Could not load file or assembly 'Intel.Misc.Utilities, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f4875dd4c8d7762f' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
I tried to raise this as an issue in Intel premier support but I could not get past step 1 as I was unable to enter a product that it recognised and the search never returned anything. Since I could not get past step 1, I was unable to report the issue so I am raising it here instead.
with my regards, Brian Gladman
Engineering team replied that a similar issue occurred in early versions of 2016 beta, and it has been fixed. Are you using 2016 beta Update 1? If no, please upgrade to Update 1. In case that the problem still persists in beta Update 1, please go to Visual Studio Help menu -> About Microsoft Visual Studio, and click on Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016. Then upload a screenshot. See the following screenshot, which is what I have on my machine. We need the version numbers in red circles.
I'm getting many messages about rolling back failed components in my attempt to add VS2015 integration to the beta update 1 installation. It seems to say I must delete the entire psxe installation and start over, after breaking it. I ran a repair phase following modify and it came up with no compiler installed.
I think we were warned sufficiently that this wouldn't work until some time this summer that it doesn't warrant a formal problem report.
I didn't have such difficulty with the 2015 update 4 (modify and repair steps both required), but that installation leaves stuff to be desired, like having to open separate windows to use CL or ICL, and the messages about dropping back from -Zi to -Z7 on account of not seeing the mspdb140.dll. Would those be subject for problem report on premier? Looks like XE2015 integration is doing something wrong with PATH settings.
It hardly seems worth the 8 hours required to install VS2015 with no options. I won't ask if the Android features in VS2015 are relevant to Intel since the stores stopped carrying Intel Android products, but they did replace my Android handset with the Intel CPU and failed microphone.
Yes, yesterday's update resolved the installation problems.
What it didn't fix, for my testing of Advisor:
Advisor doesn't work on Windows 10, as it fails to set permissions when creating result folders. Other tools are fine on win10.
If functions are compiled by different Intel compilers, even within the supported range, Advisor log filtering isn't enabled. Everything has to be compiled by the same 15.0 or 16.0 compiler release.
Attempting to use Visual FORTRAN to recompile some software.
I am getting a linker error.

Anyone know how to solve this for
