Fortran and Visual Studio

Hi 

I need Fortran compiler and Visual studio to set up and run NONMEM. 

Purchased parallel studio XE composer edition for fortran compiler. I am hearing mixed information that Fortran compiler comes with visual studio and hence no need to purchase separately. Is that true? 

Thanks

If you buy a Commercial or

If you buy a Commercial or Academic license, Intel Parallel Studio XE includes a Fortran-only development environment based on Visual Studio 2015 (the version of VS changes every once in a while.) Student and Evaluation licenses don't include this. It also works with Visual Studio Community Edition, which is free for many.

It's not VS, it's a VS-based

It's not VS, it's a VS-based Fortran-only development environment. It has none of the Microsoft compilers (VC, VB, etc.) It looks like VS but is the VS UI, some MS tools and libraries - what you need to develop, build and debug a Fortran application, nothing else to buy. The one thing you will miss is the Resource Editor for designing dialog boxes. (There is a freeware resource editor out there that people use.) Or you can install VS2017 Community Edition (follow the instructions here) and get everything you need along with the MS compilers.

While the resource editor is

While the resource editor is not included, the resource compiler is, so you can build applications that have existing resource files.
