Does the just-released Intel PS 2018 (with all the tools) require VS 2017? -- Or will it integrate with VS 2015?
We here have been so spooked by the problems with VS 2017 that we haven't installed it yet and are still using VS 2015.
I just installed the Parallel Studio XE 2018 Composer Edition for Fortran with VS 15.3.3 and it worked. Also today a new version of VS 2017 was released (15.3.4) which fixes this bug: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/100134/httpsakamsvssetuperrorreportsqpac...
Parallel studio also seems to work with that (15.3.4) version of VS. So it looks like everything is now installed correctly.
