Product Advice - Migrating Legacy Fortran application and Developing new Fortran applications

I have been given a task to migrate a very old program (originally developed in FORTRAN 77) to the most up-to-date version of Fortran (95?). The development tools purchased for this task were MS Visual Studio 2008 and Intel C++ Compiler Professional Edition Ver. 11.1. When I was given these tools, I was told that the C++ Compiler has Fortran Compiling capabilities, but I think this is incorrect.

Am I wrong about the C++ Compiler, does it have Fortran Compiling capabilities?

If not, do I have to purchase a separate compiler for Fortran or are there files/libraries I can download and install with the C++ Compiler that will provide the same functionality?

Ashley,

I am not certain if I can answer the question about Fortran code migration to your satisfaction. This may be a good question for the Intel Fortran forum which can be found at http://software.intel.com/en-us/forums/intel-visual-fortran-compiler-for-windows/.

Ashley,

Intel C++ Compiler Professional Edition 11.1 does not include the Intel Fortran compiler. For a list of current product and the components included reference the following link.

Thank you Rob,

Before I request a new product, could you tell me if: Intel Parallel Studio XE for Windows, would be the correct tool for what I need to do?

I will be migrating an application originally written in Fortran 77 that has had some minor updates over the last 3 decades (not documented at all) as well as writing new Fortran code.
