Moving FORTRAN Compiler to a new computer

Jump to solution

I found this message from Steve from ‎09-10-2009:

"Assuming you have a normal, single-user license, there is no need to transfer a license. You can install the compiler on as many systems as you want, as long as you are the primary user. Just install on the new computer using the serial number.

Retired 12/31/2016"
 

I am getting a new computer. I  am wandering if this is is still the procedure. I have a simple so called "node locked" license.  Thanks for any clarification.

1) All of the installers are "complete installers" - there are none that only update an existing installation. You don't need the license manager.

2) Yes, if the version you install supports both of those VS versions. See https://software.intel.com/en-us/intel-parallel-studio-xe-compilers-required-microsoft-visual-studio

It is still the current procedure. I recommend that you log in to the Intel Registration Center and download the license file. When you install the product, tell it you have a license file rather than a serial number. The reason is that serial numbers are tied to specific versions and if you try to install a newer version that you're still eligible for, it will fail if you use the serial number.

If you run into problems with the license being accepted, you'll need to open a ticket at the Intel Online Service Center. Intel compiler licenses are typically not "node locked".

Steve:

Thank you indeed very much for your quick reply. Before I get into trouble, I have two more follow up questions.

1) Can I use one of the latest update files to accomplish the installation? Or do I need to look for a "complete_install" file (I did not see one) or a different file called something like "license_manager ";

2) Can I incorporate it to both Visual Studio 2017 and 2019 versions on the same computer?

Best regards;
