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.


Any Ideas ?

It looks like you may have

It looks like you may have selected ia32 rather than intel64 at the beginning of installation
