Intel MKL 2017 configuration for MS Visual Studio 2015

Hi,

I'm trying to install Intel MKL 2017 (MKL 2017.3.210) on my pc with MS Visual Studio 2015 (I have to use VS 2015 because of licensing issues). I installed several times but I don't see Intel Fortran in the New Project window:

What could be the solution? How do we configure VS 2015?

 

Sorry if this was posted before.

Thanks

Installing MKL does not install Fortran. Intel Fortran, in that version, has its own installer (Parallel Studio XE), which includes MKL.

If Fortran does not appear when installing Parallel Studio XE, see Configuring Visual Studio for Mixed-Language Applications (intel.com)

Hi Bakee,


Thanks for getting back to us. The Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2017 has been successfully integrated with Visual studio, hence we will be moving this query to the Software Development Tools (Compilers, Debuggers, Profilers & Analyzers) forum which is specific to issues of this nature so it can be addressed more quickly. An expert will reach out to you in a timely manner.


Have a pleasant day ahead!


Regards,

Parallel Studio XE you have installed has C++ compiler only.

I suggest upgrading to VS 2019 and installing oneAPI HPC Toolkit that has Fortran compiler 

 then install MKL separately. 

Another option is to download compilers you need and libraries  from https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/oneapi-standalone-components.html
