I had just my machine rebuilt, because I could not update the intel software tools.
I installed the parallel studio XE 2017 (basic)
I am using win7, 64bit with VS2010, VS2013 and VS2015.
I received the error:
"error TRK0005: Failed to locate: "icl.exe". The system cannot find the file specified."
in VS2015 (debug, 64bit)
After reading on the web about possible path shortening (a well-known windows artifact, that there was no way to be anticipated or worked-around- I presume!), I decided to fire-up devenv.exe from the command prompt of PSXE 2017, which worked fine!
Now, I would like to be able to not have to go through this every time I start Visual Studio.
There is a bunch of locations in which icl.exe resides:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.109\windows\bin\intel64_ia32
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.109\windows\bin\intel64
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.109\windows\bin\ia32
which one should I use? It seems -I wish- the first is a wrapper for the other two. Is this correct?
Within VS IDE, you should not need to see which "icl.exe" to use. it's all taken care of automatically by the project configuration.
To build a project with Intel C, should do the following:
1) right click on the project(s), select "Intel Compiler" > "Use Intel C++".
is this what you did? If this is not an usage issue, it'd be better to report it to Intel Online Service Center. Here is the steps to do that: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/how-to-create-a-support-request-at-online-service-center
Thank you for your replies.
Per the first one, although the first two cases are obvious to me, the latter is not (i.e. I do not know what purpose it serves-no worries, I can continue living without knowing)
Per your second email, I have to say that when I compiled the way I described, the logo banner did not come up!.
Now, per the real heart of the question, do you have a suggestion for making it work just by setting the compiler from within the IDE, without having to start the IDE from the appropriate intel-provided command prompt
PS: there might be other reasons that make this less a matter of taste and more of a necessity. Currently, I am in another bind with CMake which tries to validate attributes of the used compiler by running MSBuild,exe, without necessarily starting things from such an environment.
(But please, let's focus on the specific problem, CMake is addressed elsewhere)
Maybe unrelated -although I don't think so- when running CMake as described above, the diagnostics set by CMake fail to compile in a very basic manner. For example, the first offense reads:

At this point, after I cleared what is happening with CMake, it is obvious that the Intel PSXE 2017 installation -despite its final statement-is incomplete.
The way CMake identifies the compiler attributes is by creating visual studio projects under the hood, endow them with the appropriate tool-chain and try to build them using MSBuild.
Therefore the incompleteness of the installation, prompting for my initial inquiry, re-surfaces again!
Can someone please give me a concrete answer for what has one to do to properly install PSXE 2017?
Update: I am looking in the VS macros as defined by the installation:
As one easily notices ICLIncludeDir is(basically) C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017\windows\compiler\include
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017
the only thing to be found is a redist folder with 2 empty folders underneath (ia32_win and intel64_win)
If instead it was pointing to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.109\windows\compiler\include
then there would be similarly some header files to include !
ICLibDir goes through the same faulty pointing.
So, it is obvious that the installation has serious problems (this is after a "repair"!)
Update 2: Looking at the registry, it seems that everything is driven of ICInstallDir. How Can I overwrite this?
