Commercial License requirements for Intel Fortran Compilers

Hi,

All oneAPI toolkits are free for commercial purposes and they include the intel fortran compiler ifort. However, in order to use ifort the "Visual Studio Build Tools (VSBT)" must be available on your system.

Microsoft has updated the VSBT license for open-source-projects last year and now even for commercial projects, VSBT can be used for compiling open-source C++ dependencies without requiring a Visual Studio license.

Please correct me, if I am wrong. Intel Fortran Compiler needs the VSBT beacause of "MS VS C Runtime Library (CRT)".  From what I found, CRT source files are open-source and can be found at "C:\Program Files (x86)\ Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC\crt\src"".

Since that is all that ifort needs, does it mean that for commercial use of ifort, no license is required (even for VSBT)?

 

Thanks in advance

Moji

Perhaps this End User License Agreement (EULA) will answer your question.
