Composer XE 2011 license file

Hey!  I need to get a "license file" in order to install my old Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2011 software on Windows 7.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

This is a "stepping stone" for resurrecting a very old project -- from a decade ago! Yikes!

projects from the 1970s will run on oneapi, you just grab the latest, it is a much better compiler and it is free.

There's info in this thread about older compiler versions. If you have paid for support, then older versions and hopefully licenses are available. But remember that there have been a lot of bug fixes and security patches since then.

Thanks.  Windows 7 is such a pain.

 

Actually, there is no indication that I ever created any production code using Composer XE 2011 -- that was all experimentation, so it can be punted.

 

Production code was all Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6 on Win NT and Windows 2000.  And both are easy to virtualize -- Ha ha!

 

So, on to oneAPI under... Ubuntu? Windows?

 

Any suggestions as to which one of those would be the better for doing big vector dot-products on a 12-core Xeon?

Either one would be fine - whichever you're more comfortable with.

Getting less and less comfortable with each new Windows version -- i.e. OneDrive, Cortana, etc. sending data to the internet.  I do not trust that it can all be turned off.  I plan to "air gap" Windows once it's configured -- i.e. VMware virtualized Windows with its network going nowhere.

 

Will do more and more with Ubuntu for sure.

 

Spent the last several years using AWS, and then Kubernetes, so maybe docker images is the way to go?!?!
