Why cant Visual Studio 2015 do any Fortran source code ?

I installed it, but I dont see any option to add a new file - not even C++

What if I want to add a Fortran Source file to a project, and compile it ?

 

Do I have to install something else ?

I dont see a Fortran template anywhere.

Visual Studio, if obtained

Visual Studio, if obtained from MS and installed, is not Fortran-aware at all. Intel adds the Fortran integration when IFort is installed, which is why users have to install VS first and then IFort. (One can do a stand-alone install IFort with the more restricted Visual Studio Shell that Intel licenses from MS and includes with Parallel Studio.)

A default installation of VS will not give you C++ support. You have to specify that you want C++ support by selecting a box in the VS installer.

For a step-by-step description of diagnosing VS+Ifort problems, see https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/troubleshooting-fortran-integration-issues-with-visual-studio .

Ok, I have the VS 14.0 folder

Ok, I have the VS 14.0 folder, but I didnt see any Fortran stuff under that.

So how do I get the matching Fortran compiler for VS 2015 community?

I didnt see anything in the article about where to find it.

When I do a search, I only see the FORUM topics, but nowhere

does it guide me to the actual download of the compiler material.

Does that require a separate license, or purchase ?

Go to https:/

Go to https://registrationcenter.intel.com/en/, sign in using the panel at the top right, and you will see a list of products that you are eligible to download. 

You should be eligible to install Parallel Studio 18.0.3 or earlier. You may also be eligible for the newly released 19.0, but I guess that you may be better off with 18.0.3.

Before you install Intel Fortran, be sure to verify that you have Visual C++ components installed in Visual Studio.

Well, I went there, and

Well, I went there, and

SAW NOTHING AT ALL ABOUT FORTRAN COMPILERS.

 

The Visual Studio I installed apparently can handle C++ code, but

It doesn't integrate with any Fortran source compiler libraries.

Which is what I need to work on my current projects.

Is there someone there that knows how to do something with Fortran?

 

BTW, what is PYTHON? They kinda spring that on us,

but is there a place where they explain what that it is, or what it does ?

It is an interpreted programming language, a Guido van Rossum creation. See https://books.google.com/books?id=q4LtdR0cAiYC&printsec=frontcover&dq=Python+language+O%27reilly&hl=... .
