Hi, I am new to MS Visual Studio IDE. I don't understand which packages to install for using or developing Fortran based projects. I need to understand which are the bare minimum requirements for developing using Fortran in windows.
Also, I installed some packages (including Visual Studio SDK, which according to documentation should also install VS Shell, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/extensibility/internals/visual-studio-shell?view=vs-2019) that I thought would be required, but I encountered the problem with this again and again:
Microsoft Visual Studio Shell* deprecation
Microsoft* has announced the stand-alone Microsoft Visual Studio Shell* will not be available for Visual Studio 2017. As such, we are no longer providing a standalone shell.
An integrated shell is available as part of the full Microsoft Visual Studio bundle. Please refer to https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/ for further information on the Microsoft Visual Studio product offerings. For any questions or requests please contact us at https://software.intel.com/en-us/support.
I think this is the problem when I once fired up Visual Studio and couldn't output any prompt, like simple 'Hello, World' through Fortran Code.
I don't think I was able to explain my problem completely. There are a lot of small issues which needs resolving. I want to do a fresh installation please guide me.
The requirements for installing Intel Fortran on Windows are described at https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-visual-fortran-compiler-190-for-windows-release-notes-for-intel-parallel-studio-xe-2019 under System Requirements.
The screenshots that you provided indicate that you did install Visual Studio and the C/C++ development components for Windows Desktop. To verify this, open a Visual Studio command prompt from the Start Menu, and then create, build and run a simple hello-world C program. If you think that you have already installed Intel Fortran, open a corresponding command window for that, and take corresponding steps for a hell-world Fortran program.
You can also check in the Windows Programs and Features control panel to see which parts of Visual Studio and Intel Fortran have been installed.
"I think this is the problem when I once fired up Visual Studio and couldn't output any prompt, like simple 'Hello, World' through Fortran Code" -- sorry, that sentence does not make any sense to me.
