I need to use the Intel Fortran compiler and have downloaded a trial version of parallel_studio_xe_2017_update1_setup. Was trying to setup via Visual Studio but having zero success in getting VS2015 on Windows 10. Nothing works, thoughts?
I am going to take a guess and suggest that you read https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/installing-visual-studio-2015-for-use-with-intel-compilers
Let us know what happens.
Apologizes for being unclear about my problem.
Problems (side-by-side errors) with installation of MS Visual Studio regarding missing dll's not being installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE. For example: "Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe". Dependent Assembly coloader80.dll, processor Architecture="X86",type="w in32",version="126.96.36.199" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis."
List of missing dll's and exe's:
Note: no other VS version on machine and the files are not in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE
Tried complete uninstall, repair, used both web and ISO installation, etc.
Any suggestions appreciated.
It sure looks like your problem is all related to the incomplete VS2015 install. It's no surprise then that you can't use Intel Fortran. You'll need to resolve the VS2015 issue first and perhaps you can find some help in the Microsoft community forums. Attaching the log there would be useful.
Thanks Steve. Posted over there is weekend and just got an answer ---- pretty much the same you guessed. I'll work through the details again to address their suggestions and see what happens.
FYI, no need to reply.
Don't try VS2015 in Windows 10. MS hasn't a solution to the issue(s) that arise. I've lost a week of my Parallel XE Studio trial due to this issue. Call me stupid for working with MS on the issue. Intel is not responsible for my waste of time.
VS2013 works fine.
Good to know. When and if I reinstall the OS, I'll try VS2015 hoping the new installation will correct whatever my problems are. At this point that action is a real pain the the a$$.
