Cannot configure VS2013 to use Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 4 after installing Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4 Composer Edition

Jump to solution

I had VS2013 installed and configured to use Fortran Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 4. Because of the problem with VS2017 15.3.3 not recognizing Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4, I planned to install VS2017 15.0 followed by Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4 and then upgrade VS2017 15.0 to 15.3 (this is described in another thread in this forum).

I also read that installing Fortran 2017 Update 4 will cause VS2013 to use that version rather than Fortran 2013. This link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-older-intel-visual-fortran-versions-in-different-mic... describes how to preserve old compiler versions in older Visual Studio versions. I made a backup copy before installing Fortran 2017 as described in Newer version not yet installed. After installation I used step 3 in this link: https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/troubleshooting-fortran-integration-issues-with-visual-stu..., to configure VS2013 to use Fortran 2013.

After doing this, VS2013 still shows "Intel(R) Visual Fortran Compiler 17.0.4.210" in Tools | Options | Intel Compilers and Tools | Visual Fortran | Compilers. Interestingly, Help | About Microsoft Visual Studio shows "Intel(R) Visual Fortran Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 4 Integration for Microsoft Visual Studio* 2013, " I confirmed that Fortran 2017 is being used to compile.

I have tried this a few times, rebooting in between, with the same results.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Problem resolved.

The article Using multiple Intel Visual Fortran versions in Microsoft Visual Studio (https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-older-intel-visual-fortran-versions-in-different-mic...fails to mention one important thing: when installing Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4, there is an option to not integrate with VS2013. To get there, click the Customize button when it appears and then Next a couple of times. Uncheck VS 2013.

Then, after installing Fortran 2017, when you open VS2013 Tools - Options - Intel Composer XE - Visual Fortran - Compilers has Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 4 in the list. Select this and you are done.

Do this when installing Fortran 2017 and none of the other things described in https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-older-intel-visual-fortran-versions-in-different-mic... and https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/troubleshooting-fortran-integration-issues-with-visual-stu... needed.

I should have said the repair was successful but did not solve the problem.
