Changing the compiler in Visual Studio


I am a new user of Intel Fortran compilers on Windows. I recently installed the Intel Parallel Studio 2016. And, I tested a Fortran code with and without MPI using the command prompt which worked well.

However, while using the Microsoft Visual Studio, when I try to compile any Fortran code, it always uses 'ífort' compiler. I would like to know if it is possible to compile a code using 'mpiifort' in the Microsoft Visual Studio? Also, is it possible to tell the Visual Studio to use a Makefile for the compilation?

Best regards,

mpifort is not a compiler -

mpifort is not a compiler - it's a batch file that runs the compiler with some added defaults. You can add those to your project.

No, Visual Studio does not support makefiles.
