Root key in Windows registry for Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 on 64-bit OS Windows 7

Hi,

I have installed Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 on 64-bit OS Windows 7. I am going to use Fortran and visual basic and link them to Aspen Plus but the problem is that Fortran will be installed on HKEY_CURRENT_USER and not in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and because of that Fortran cannot be linked to Aspen Plus. I have tried to reinstall it several times (tried cluster edition for students and also the free trial of professional version) but I will not get any option during the installation to install it on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE but I am pretty sure that I am able to install software on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE because I did it with visual basic. Is there anyone who have had the same problem before or can help me with this problem.

Thanks!

When you install Intel

When you install Intel parallel Studio, registry keys for the product do go into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Because you're on a 64-bit system, the keys are under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intel and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Intel\Products in particular. There's not much of interest under HKEY_CURRENT_USER. 

Are you sure you have Administrator privilege? I think Windows 7 may put some things under HKCU if you try to install without it. What keys do you find under HKCU?
