Fortran Program Compilation error

I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 and Intel OneApi HPC and Base Toolkit on a Windows 10  machine.  

(https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/tools/oneapi/toolkits.html#hpc-kit)

I am trying to compile a Fortran program from the OneAPi Command Prompt window.

I am getting the following error while compiling a Fortran program.

ifort: error #10037: could not find 'link'

I understand that it is related to the link.exe file. I noticed that the file is located in the bin folder of the Microsoft Visual Studio folder under the program files folder.

Any lead is much appreciated.

You probably did not install the components of Visual Studio that are required for compiling and linking Windows C/C++ programs. These components are not installed by default when you install Visual Studio; they are listed under "optional" in the VS installer, but they are essential for Intel Fortran to work.

A simple test of whether the Visual Studio installation is ready for adding Intel Fortran is:

     Build and run a simple C program in the Visual Studio command window.

I agree with @mecej4 , and this is signaled by the warning in the initial output. See Installing Microsoft Visual Studio* for Use with Intel® Compilers
