xilink: : error #10037: could not find 'ar.exe'

Dear all:

  When I tried to compile the sample code "gfx_samples" under the path "IntelSWTools\samples_2016\en\compiler_c\psxe" of Parallel Studio XE 2016, I got an error:

xilink: : error #10037: could not find 'ar.exe'

I tried to write some code using intel graphics technology of intel compiler, I got the same error

and there are not any files which name is "ar.exe" in my computer.

I use windows 7, Visual Studio 2010 and 2013, Parallel Studio XE is "parallel_studio_xe_2016_update2 Cluster".

My CPU is i5 4590, with 12GB RAM.

And I use a nVidia graphics card GTX660Ti, but I think it is not related to the error.

Who can help me?

Thanks!
