Installing Fortran on new PC

Old PC is Win 7 and I have a valid license of Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2018 Update 4 Composer Edition for Fortran Windows installed on it.

I run it on Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Shell (integrated) Version 12.0.40629.00 Update 5

I'm getting a new PC to replace old desktop and wondering what order and what files I need to install on the new Win 10 Intel Laptop.

I tried to install the Fortran EXE but it says something like I have the wrong Visual Studio or something. I tried to D/L the Visual Studio but I'm not sure which one.

I just dabble in Fortran that I learned in 1967 and write or revise programs only occasionally (once every 6 months) but I need to get Fortran going on the new PC. .... Thanks

What is the complete filename

What is the complete filename of the installer EXE you are using? For PSXE 2018 Update 4, the full EXE (not one with _IA32 or _INTEL64 in its name) should also install a supported Visual Studio Shell.

If not, I recommend Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition, which you can download from . Do not get the 2019 version as it won't support your 2018.4 Intel product. Make sure you follow the instructions in
