Is there any reason why Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 Beta should be looking for a software license? When I try to use the compiler, I get the message below. The compile also fails when I assign my version 16 license file to $INTEL_LICENSE_FILE.
Error: A license for Beta-Comp-FL could not be obtained (-1,359,2).
Is your license file in the right location and readable?
The location of your license file should be specified via
the $INTEL_LICENSE_FILE environment variable.
License file(s) used were (in this order):
** 1. /home/braun/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.042/linux/bin/intel64/../../Licenses
** 2. /home/braun/Licenses
** 3. /opt/intel/licenses
** 4. /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses
** 5. /home/braun/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2017.0.042/linux/bin/intel64/*.lic

Yes, it should look for a license. Normally the license is created in /opt/intel/licenses when you install by serial number. Did you do an actual install or are you just pointing to a copy on disk somewhere?
I installed under my user account. With the help of your reply, I found the license file under my $HOME directory (in place of /opt), and pointed $INTEL_LICENSE_FILE to that. It works. Thank you.
