Unattended install of OpenCL Code Builder

I am the developer of VexCL - an opensource C++ library for OpenCL (https://github.com/ddemidov/vexcl). I'd like to use Intel OpenCL Code Builder as a part of continuous integration process at AppVeyour.com. In order to do this, the Code Builder has to be installed from a build script. It is possible to install just the Code Builder from online installer of Intel® INDE (https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/getting-started-with-opencl-development-on-windows-with-intel-inde). The installer at some point says it is downloading code_builder_x64_setup.msi. Would it be possible to get a direct link for the msi package?

Please install  install INDE, save downloaded ocl msi file, and then reuse it in CI.

Check the following post on info on how to save the msi:

Robert,

Thanks for your reply. I actually tried that already, unfortunately unsuccessfully. Here is the build log with msi installer output: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/ddemidov/vexcl/build/1.0.15. Do I miss some parameters?

Denis,

Our installer support is in Russia, so response maybe delayed. My 2 cents: could it be that you need to reboot after installing OpenCL msi?

The reboot could be a problem, since each AppVeyor instance is a fresh copied virtual machine image. Anyway, I am trying a couple of things, will report if those turn out to work.

Given that this approach will work, I would have to keep a copy of msi online and publicly available. Would that be acceptable?

I was hoping that I made an error in the download link, but it turns out the msi was downloaded successfully: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/ddemidov/vexcl/build/1.0.16. So I'll have to wait for response from installer support.

Thank again!

Hi Denis,

This is the message that I got from the installer team:

At this point Code Builder cannot be installed separately but only as-part of INDE.

We’re evaluating the option (with INDE team) to have a separate distribution of OpenCL Code Builder in the next INDE update (U3) timeframe.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for the update! Is it possible to get access to previous versions of Intel OpenCL SDK? All of the old links now lead to the INDE page.
