Write access for .obj file

This is the source file:
 
      Program hello
      print *, 'hello world'
      end program
 
This is the command screen:

Setting environment for using Microsoft Visual Studio Shell 15.0 x86 tools.
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools>ifort /c C:\temp\hello.f90

error: can't open file hello.obj for write
compilation aborted for C:\temp\hello.f90 (code 1)
C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools>
 

I can turn off the "Read-only" attribute for the folder C:\temp, but when I execute ifort it gets changed back, and ifort can not generate the .obj file.

while running the compiler via the command prompt, cd to the folder containing the code before trying to compile

And as Steve already explained, you should do program development in a folder that you created, where you will have full read-write permissions.  Never work in a folder that is part of the compiler installation.

In particular, don't do development in a folder under Windows or Program Files. Unfortunately, the shortcut created by the install uses the install folder as a default. I'm not sure if the installer has the ability to change this.

However, you can Right-Click on the shortcut, select properties, then in the Shortcut property tab, set the Start in property to a default folder of your preference (e.g. C:\temp or C:\workspace or ...)

Sure, or what I do is:

  1. Copy the shortcut to my desktop
  2. Change the Start In folder
  3. Edit the path for Target to start with "%IFORT_COMPILER19%bin\"

This last means I can use the same shortcut to get the latest update and not have to find it in the Start menu. I also edit the Layout to increase the Window Size and Buffer Size.

Good point by Jim, I was going to write the same.

It's rather surprising the Parallel Studio installer sets up shortcuts with a "Start in" setting to a folder under ProgFiles, a no-no from any software enterprise perspective:

Why can't someone from Intel staff take an action item from this thread to loop back to the Parallel Studio packaging team to modify the shortcut(s) with user-friendly settings such as those described in Quote #8?

What would you suggest the installer select for Start In? The only thing I can think of would be My Documents. But then I looked at what Microsoft Visual Studio does, and it also sets Start In to be the install folder, so I have to think that the mechanism for adding the shortcut doesn't provide that capability.

Why not Visual Studio XXXX folder in Documents?  Every shortcut in Intel Parallel Studio is specific to target platform (e.g., x64) but also the integration with a Visual Studio version.  And Microsoft Visual Studio installer indeed creates a folder under Documents e.g., %user profile\Documents\Visual Studio 2017.

Not a bad idea, but I do have to wonder why VS itself doesn't do this.
