I have just downloaded Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 Update 2 Composer Edition. Where can I find the redistributable exe or msm files that go with them?
The .msi (can be used instead of exe) is linked on the Intel Registration Center download page for the Fortran Composer Edition. I will ask the maintainer of https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/redistributables-for-intel-parallel-studio-xe-2016-composer-edition-for-windows to update it. The .msm can be found installed along with the compiler in its Redist folder. For example, C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools\compilers_and_libraries\windows\redist\intel64_win\compiler
my command to install the redistributables is: msiexec .I ww_ifort_redist_ia32_2016.e.180.msm msiexec returns a 1620 error 'This action is only valid for products that are currently installed'.... What gives?
Are you sure msiexec is for use with msm files? It was my understanding that this was to be included in an installer. Error 1620 indicates that's its not a valid installer package. If you want to install separately, use the .msi.
