Major problems with the Update 2 installers on Windows 7 SP1
Heres another one. Automatic linking in Visual Studio of MKL is now broken in Update 2. Previously if you selected MKL in Intel Performance Libraries the linker would get the MKL libraries automatically. I know have to add mkl_rt.lib to my linker options for all projects that use MKL.
I resolved the crashing installer issue by removing all previous copies of Parallel Studio 2017
