I have downloaded the XE2016 update 3 composer edition. I have the serial # and the product update agreement in place and paid in full. When I try to install the compiler, the installer posts a phony message that it has failed to connect to internet, what a load of BS. At any rate, I am stuck with this installer and need help to install this update. I used to get the *.lic file, but I don't know where to get it from anymore.
You can get the .lic by logging in to the Intel Registration Center and selecting your license. An Internet connection is needed unless you are going to activate using a license file. Note also that we offer an online installer, which is small but requires Internet access, and a large offline installer.
You should also be able to enter the serial number at install - having just reinstalled 4 times in 3 days for different reasons,
It is not large - Steve, the moon is large, it is HUGE.
