oneAPI installation issue

I was trying to produce a simplified step-by-step instruction set to a noob to Intel Software.

Not knowing what he has installed I used a laptop without MS VS as a test installation system to build my instructions.

 

First step of instructions was "If you do not have MS VS installed, install the MS VS Community edition" and I provided links to the 2022 version.

I specified, minimally to select the Desktop C++ components.

 

Then to Launch MS VS to assure if any post-installation updates would be loaded (which I did).

Then Exit MS VS, and install oneAPI Base toolkit

 

This is where the issue came in. At 98% installation (at integrating with system), the program hang.

At that point, I noticed two instances of the oneAPI Base toolkits were running. The hidden one had a message that it could not proceed with the other running. Cancelling this did not resume the installation of oneAPI Base toolkit. So I terminated that with the Task Manager.

 

Upon relaunching the oneAPI base toolking, with expectation of performing a Repair. The installation stated the MS VS had an incomplete installation, that had to be Repaired before proceeding with oneAPI Base toolkit.

 

Note, because oneAPI base didn't complete installation, I thought I didn't have an option to remove it.

 

Running Add/Remove Programs and selecting MS VS, I find no Repair option. So I select Remove. And remove MS VS. (Note, I did not reboot my notebook after removal of MS VS).

 

Then I Re-Installed MS VS Community 2022. Installation went without error (slow but complete).

 

Then launched MS VS to assure installation complete (first time took a while).

 

Now, the interesting part.

 

In navigating the MS VS toolbar to locate "Check for updates", I find "Extensions | Intel | ..." with the oneAPI options?!?! Remember oneAPI didn't complete .AND. MS VS was uninstalled and reinstalled.

 

Now, I am in the process of reinstalling oneAPI Base (and hope it does not complain that it is already installed).

 

Back later.

Says installation completed.

 

Now on to the oneAPI HPC installation.

 

System was Windows 10 Home x64, i3-8130U, 12GB RAM (4GB solderd on, 8GB add-in)

You can buy a 5 volume pack of Windows 10 pro for about 30 USD.  An i3 with 12GB ram will run that nicely, similar to all the NUCS I have all over the world now.  Better than home. 

It should not take more than 2 hours to install the lot, your main issue is the download times.  

Good idea to explain it.

John,

I do have MS VS + OneAPI installed and running on several machines. These systems all have had earlier versions of MS VS installed (xxxx?, 2010, 2019) as well as many earlier versions of Intel Visual Parallel Studio.

 

What I was trying to do was take a relatively "virgin" Windows 10 Home, and install the necessary prerequisites and then install the oneAPI Base then oneAPI HPC and in the process produce a step-by-step set of instructions as opposed to a list of links, and letting the noob flounder.

 

Right now, the HPC installation is hanging in the Finializing ... up to 10 minutes... (been much longer than 10 minutes)

Periodically I get the spinning wheel mouse, I presume that means it is still progressing.

It would be nice if some sort of progress indicator would be shown, preferably "Step 1 of nnn, ... Step 2 of nnn, ..., etc." as opposed to a progress bar, like the one stuck at 96% for a very long time (which can be mistaken for installation has hung-up on something).

The hang is possibly due to disk I/O, that was pegged at 100%, then it has dropped down, then up. Now WiFi is kicking in, though I chose for off-line installation of Base and HPC.

Installation of HPC completed (much longer than 10 minutes)

 

Launchd MS VS (without rebooting).

New Project, Pull-Down Languages and Intel Fortran is not found.

Extensions | Intel | Create New Intel oneAPI Project

    brings up the regular "New Project" menu without the Intel project types

 

Rebooting - same results.

 

Integration with MS VS 2022 (17.7.0)

 

By the way, Help | About shows the Intel installed components.

If I create a new C++ project (with Solution), then add a new project to that solution, I do not see the Intel project types listed.

 

I can launch the oneAPI command prompt from the Start menu system. ifort and ifx can both be run from command prompt.

 

****

Is there a method to integrate the oneAPI components into MS VS 2022 __after__ installation of Intel oneAPI?

Jim:

I understand what you are trying to do and it is a good idea.

I would just avoid home, the cost of pro is not a real issue for anyone, there are so many "OEM" who sell their surplus.  

Theoretically you should be able to use the VSIX files to apply the oneapi to VS, but the time is not worth the effort.  

It is never 10 minutes, usually I just leave it running and come back.  It can take an hour on some systems, no idea why.  

I have two NUC computers 11's sitting in Iowa with Win11 and one older NUC6 with Win10 I have no problems with the 6 and nothing but grief with the 11's.  I got an old 6 and put it into Iowa so at least one stayed up.  

The new ones are a pain.

Now I see on: Solved: Failed to compile after upgrading visual studio 2022 to latest release 17.7.0 - Intel Community

That there is a compatibility issue with the latest version of MS VS 2022 Community Edition.

 

** The supported: VS 2022 17.6.4 is difficult to find on the microsoft.com site. All roads seem to lead to 17.7.0.

non-microsoft.com sites seem to have it (but is this safe to install?).

Maybe you can try here:

Ware now also trying out different version and currently testing the latest stable release

Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2022 (64-bit) - LTSC 17.6

Yes, I saw that web page...

The links given there are for the Enterprise Professional versons ...

... as opposed to the Microsoft Visual Studio 20nn vm.m.mn Community versions.
