new install of XE 2017 update 2 under VS2015 fails
recently got a new computer at work and had intel compiler installed into VS2015. All went well (no errors thrown) but when I try to compile I get:
ifort: error #10408: The Intel(R) 64 target compiler cannot be found in the expected location. Please check your installation or documentation for more information.
ifort: error #10036: unable to run 'C:\PROGRA~2\INTELS~1\COMPIL~1.187\windows\bin\intel64\ifort.exe'
I've noticed that in the installation folder: 'C:\PROGRA~2\INTELS~1\COMPIL~1.187\windows\bin\intel64 DOes not contain any .exe files - BUT they can be found in: 'C:\PROGRA~2\INTELS~1\COMPIL~1.187\windows\bin\intel64_ia32
in Vs2015 I tried updating the pointers in Tools->options->Cisual Fortran->compilers-> executables. But this made no difference.
