rc.exe not found

I have seen a number of folks having difficulty with this error and I am now a new victim.  Here is my situation - perhaps my problem is somehow related to this combination:

1- Running Windows on OSx using boot camp

2- Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015

3- Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition for Windows - student version

Any advice is appreciated

Locate the folder containing

Locate the folder containing rc.exe. It will probably be C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x86 for 32-bit, C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\bin\x64 for 64-bit. In Visual Studio, select Tools > Options > Intel Compilers and Tools > Visual Fortran > Compilers. Edit the Executables list (with the Win32 tab active) and add the x86 path. Then click on x64 and add the x64 path. Click OK.

Thanks Steve, Not there.  I

Thanks Steve, not there.  I downloaded Microsoft SDK for windows 10. I even searched the entire C: drive but rc.exe is not there.  The only executable I see is vsgraphicsdesktopengine.exe in the path(s) you suggested. BTW, possible to install visual studio in OSx?

In that case, the problem is

In that case, the problem is that you did not customize the install of VS2015 to add C++ Language support. This is required. The Intel Parallel Studio install warns you about this but allows you to continue anyway, something I have asked to be changed.

Do a "Modify" on VS2015, check the box for C++ language support, then reinstall Intel Parallel Studio.

Visual Studio is for Windows only. We have an Intel Parallel Studio XE for OS X that works with XCode, Apple's equivalent of Visual Studio, though a lot of the Fortran-friendly functionality is missing due to Apple restrictions.

Steve - Yes, that was it.  I

Steve - Yes, that was it.  I skipped the warning because I was not interested in C++.  I didn't know it was necessary.  While I am often guilty of not reading the instructions carefully enough, the instructions are fragmented at best.  It took me a while to figure out what you meant by "Do a "Modify"..." .  I would be really helpful if there was a concise instruction on how to perform the install.  I have seen homegrown instructions (for other software installations) in MS Word with screen pictures which are very helpful. But I got it done and on my way.  Thanks Steve, you are a real resource - and a real workhorse too.
