I've had great difficulty in upgrading to 2012 SP1 update 2 on windows 8.1, possibly because I installed update 1 from the parallel studio installer. I've noticed additional bug fixes in update 2. I made progress at last by trying a full remove with the parallel studio installer, then running the cluster studio installer.
Resulting ICL version string:
Intel(R) C++ Intel(R) 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Ve
rsion 188.8.131.52 Build 20140130
This compiler, although quoting update 1, appears to have the update 2 stability fixes.
Although I had removed Parallel Studio, it came back after shutdown, with the Microsoft paths broken. The cluster studio installation, however, seems to survive shutdown.
If the version string is as you quoted, then it's still the old Update 1. The new one (Update 2) should be visible as:
Intel(R) C++ Intel(R) 64 Compiler XE for applications running on Intel(R) 64, Version 184.108.40.206 Build 20140130
