Cannot install old edition on OS X 10.11

Hi,

I just update my macbook towards a new OS X version, namely 10.11. I needed to reinstall my Intel Fortran Compiler 11.1 for which I have a license but it tells me that "Intel Fortran Compiler 11.0 for Mac OS X is only supported bu 10.4.x and higher" which make no sense. I understand that OS X changed quite a bite since 10.4.x but I should be able to install my Fortran compiler on this machine. 

Is there any hack/hint to skip the system check during installation?

 

Thanks for any help.

a.

Not that I know of. The major

Not that I know of. The major problem is that Apple keeps changing things in incompatible ways. The message should not have said "or higher". The sad fact is that there is a very limited subset of OS X/Xcode versions we can support with any particular compiler version. The changes are not just in installation but even in the libraries and tools, as Apple continuously introduces breaking changes.

The best advice I have is to upgrade to Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016.
