My attempt to configure Visual Studio Community 19 and install Parallel Studio update 2 has been unsuccessful. Installation of PSu2 required uninstalling, but then reinstalled without warnings. However, I am unable to find "Compile" on any of my menus, nor do I appear to have access to linking and debugging tools. Is PSu2 really compatible with VSC19, or do In need to backtrack to an earlier VSC?
it works fine with VS2019 Community IF and ONLY IF you
- install the Microsoft C++ component
- Install the "Desktop development with C++ Component". you can see this article
as the Release Notes describes.
If you do NOT have those prerequisites - uninstall Intel Fortran. Install those components, restart the PC, install PSXE 2020 U2
Thanks for the suggestions. I already had the "desktop development for C++" workload installed, along with a couple of others that I thought were applicable. However, following your instructions, I uninstalled Parallel Studio, restarted, and reinstalled, without any change in outcome.
How do I ensure that the Microsoft C++ component is installed?
'Help' menu -> "About Microsoft Visual Studio" you should see "Visual C++ 2019 - blah blah blah"
You will have to tell us what you are doing and what you are seeing. So first, command line. Are you using a regular command window or Start -> Intel Parallel Studio XE 2020 -> "Compiler 19.1 Update 2 for Intel 64 Visual Studio 2019 environment" to start a command window with environment set up and ready to go.
Or this if you wan to use a regular Command Prompt window (you need to run compilervars.bat). Scroll down to WIndows - this page formatting is ugly but ignoring that ...
and if you want to use Visual Studio start here:
