I just updated my compiler to 2013 ver3 from 2011 ver8 (trying to fix a debug problem I was having with one source file).
The new install did not fix the problem but otherwise the compiler appeared to work OK. Because c: drive on my system is very short on spare space and 2013 ver3 was working OK, I then removed the old version.
However, since removing 2011 ver8 I can no longer compile programs. VS 2010 opens and I can open solutions / projects OK; ie. the edit windows display OK.
However, as soon as I attempt to recompile the project, the attached message comes up and I can proceed no further; ie. no longer able to compile.
I assume that uninstalling 2011 ver8 has crippled something.
Where to from here? Do I need to reinstall 2013 ver3? If so, just reinstall over the top of the existing install?
Thanks for any help
Did you only install the 64-bit version of the new compiler? If the version you installed was also for 32-bit, I would expect reinstalling the new version should fix this. Normally, reinstalling over the top of an existing compile is not a problem. If this doesn't work, then you'll need to wait for some advice from the Intel guys when they're next online.
You could try repairing your installation (e.g. in Add/Remove Programs), but in my experience it's more often necessary to remove and re-install ifort when the installation goes bad. As you normally allow the temporary installer files to be removed, you need to extract them anyway.
