Intel Compiler option does not appear under Project Menu

New Contributor I


I originally had installed Intel Fortran Studio 2017 on Visual Studio 2013. When we received the 2018 update, I installed VS 2017 Pro and installed the Intel 2018 update which asked me which VS version to integrate. I chose VS 2017. I did not delete or uninstall VS 2013 which was integrated with the Intel 2017 compilers. Everything seems to work fine with the Fortran compiler.

I decide to add a C++ procedure. I started a C++ project with a simple Hello world with Visual C++. However, I want to use Intel C++ compiler. I cannot find a way to switch to Intel C++ compiler. Contrary to the instructions in the reference manual, I do not have an "Intel Compiler" entry under the Project menu or anywhere else in VS 2017.

I checked installation using the instructions given under "troubleshooting-fortran-integration-issues". I seemed to have all the right files in the right places.

Any help would be appreciated.

Follow up:

Under the VS 2017:

Tools>Options>Intel Compilers and Tools

contains "Visual Fortran" and "Debugger". No sign of C++.



this is installation issue, you can submit a ticket to Online Service Center. 

There might be a couple of reasons here: 
1) might have installed the Intel Parallel Studio for Fortran Windows only package. so please make sure you have downloaded a pkg with C++ and Fortran compilers
2) the update installation will only install the same components as previous installation. so suggestion is to uninstall the Intel Parallel Studio and reinstall it.

Thank you for the prompt response. Before I submit a ticket I will try your suggestion. However, would uninstalling Parallel Studio create a possible issue with my license (Intel). Do I need to do something before uninstalling?

Thanks again.
