Upgraded Intel C++ Compiler is not detected by Visual Studio 10

Today I downloaded and installed Intel C++ Parallel Studio XE 2013 SP 1 Update 3 for Windows and Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 4 for Windows, replacing the old installations. No problems were reported during installation -  the Intel Software Manager History reports that both the above SPs were installed, the VS Project > Properties > General > Platform Toolset is now configured as 'Intel C++ Compiler XE 14.0.'
However it now appears that the compiler is not being picked up by Visual Studio 10.  and when I try to build a project I get the following error message:

'C:\Program Files\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Platforms\Win32\Microsoft.Cpp.Win32.Targets(518,5): error MSB8008: Specified platform toolset (Intel C++ Compiler XE 14.0) is not installed or invalid. Please make sure that a supported PlatformToolset value is selected.'

Also, I notice that the option to set the Visual Studio Tools\Options\Intel C++\Compilers is not displayed and in the Solution Explorer pane, there is no longer an option to select Project > Intel C++ Compiler XE > Use Intel C++ (or select the Microsoft Compiler).

Can you advise what has happened and what I can do to fix this?

Regards.

I am wondering you hit the old issue you reported:

https://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/topic/277583

Please have a look and check whether you installed both 32bit and 64bit. :)

Thanks,

Yes, but I I don't think this is the same issue, I already had the previous versions working correctly, and the Intel Software Manager pointed me to the updated versions to download

Hi,

     Could you please navigate to "Tools --> Options -->  Intel Parallel Studio XE --> C++ --> Compilers" and see if you have set "Target Platform" as Win32/x64 (according to your application), If win32, make sure you have the 32-bit compiler installed.

Then select the latest compiler from the "Platform Toolset" and "Selected Compiler", which you see in your project properties as shown belo in the 2nd screenshot.

Hi,
Thanks Sukruth H V but since the upgrade I do not see any more Intel Parallel Studio XE in the Tools -> Options dialogue (see my attachment VisualStudioToolsOptions).  The project properties dialogue (VisualStudioProjectProperties attachment) shows the platform toolset, but that's it. 

Previously my installation was working fine, I purchased a new license key, and selected to update to the latest versions using Intel Software Manager, and it seemed like upgrade went okay (see VisualStudioIntelSoftwareManager attachment).

Hi,

     Thanks for the screenshots. I could see a section "Intel_Composer_XE" in "VisualStudio ToolsOptions.png". Could you please expand this section and let me know the options inside?

I see "Parallel Studio XE SP1 2013 update 3" and "Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 SP1 update 4" being installed from "Intel Software Manager" screenshot. But I see from the timestamp that you have installed the C++ Composer package first and then Parallel Studio XE. I am doubtful that this might be an issue. To check whether it is, Could you please goto "Contol Panel" --> "Add or remove Programs"  and try to uninstall the "Intel C++ Compiler XE 2013 SP1 update 4" and then boot your system, install it back again.

Sorry for so many steps. Please do let me know the results back.

Regards,

Sukruth H V

In the end I did a reinstall using the .exe, rather than trying to update through the Intel Software Manager, and everything is okay now.
I think something must have gone wrong in the installation, perhaps as you say I did things in an unorthodox order.
Thanks very much for the help!

Interesting that after reinstall through .exe worked. We'll pass this scenario you bumped into our Software Manager product team, thanks
