Hi all,

I am trying to purchase and download Intel Visual Fortran 16.0 Update 1 Compiler. When I went to the download link of Visual Fortran Compiler, it automatically download the last version. As I understand, I can download the older versions from Intel Registration center. In order to sing in in registration center, I think I need to first purchase the product. I could`t find the possibilty in internet to purchase the compiler. I am a little bit  confused :). Do you have any suggestion how to proceed?

Regards,

Atilim

If you search this Forum you will find many posts similar to this. the short answer is v16 is no longer available:

Supported and Unsupported Product Versions: https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/intel-software-development-tools-suppo...


Getting Older Version Products:

https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/older-version-product.html


The other commend is YOU DON'T NEED OR WANT version 16. Newer versions should work just as well. If a vendor says they support 16.0 that means it's the last compiler they tried 5 or 7 years ago and they just haven't kept up to date. More than likely the latest IFORT will work fine with your application.

You may obtain and use the current compiler package free of cost, but paid support is available for purchase. For details, see this link .
