I have installed VS Community 2017 and Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4 Cluster Ed.
No problems on the installation (except before I realize that I need also Desktop development with C++ component.)
I have a program on Fortran. So, I create a project (Create a Project from existing Fortran code. Then two options:
1) If I compile without adding files, when I run the program (debug), It cannot find the project.
2) If I compile adding all files, when I run the program, it says it cannot find rc.exe not found
Did you in fact select "Desktop Development with C++ from the VS2017 install? If not, run the VS installer again and select this from the first page. I ran through this exact scenario just a few days ago.
I uninstalled both VS Community 2017 and PSXE Cluster update 4. I installed VS with "Desktop Development with C++ from first installation page. I then installed PSXE. Still I'm having the same problem.... rc.exe not found.
Additionally, I create the project using x64 or using the default x86 and then using the configuration manager.
Search your C disk for rc.exe. If you properly installed VS2017 you should find one copy in a folder with a name similar to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.15063.0\x86
and one in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\bin\10.0.15063.0\x64
Add the path you find to Tools > Options > Intel Compilers and Tools > Visual Fortran > Compilers > Executables. Add the x86 path to the list under Win32, and the x64 path to the list under x64.
I did it and it works.
Then, I got problems with ifort.exe. Following the same idea, I added the path
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.4.210\windows\bin\ia32 (Win32)
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries_2017.4.210\windows\bin\intel64
After that, I got the error #10037: could not find 'link'. Following intructions in other post, I rename C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VC to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\VCX.....but stll gave me the same error.
Thanks for all the help!
You absolutely should not be adding Intel paths, nor renaming VS folders. My advice at this point is to uninstall Intel Parallel Studio, uninstall VS, and start from the beginning. Make sure that you select C++ Desktop Development in the VS install.
