Licence for old version of Intel Fortran

My company uses PSCAD software for simulation of electricity grids. PSCAD automatically generates a Fortran programme which you then compile and use to simulate a particular grid.

Previously we had used the GFortran compiler, but recently we have had to link the object code that we produce with object code that has previously been produced using an older version of Intel Fortran  (and I think an older version of Visual C as well). We tried installing the latest Intel Fortran Compiler Classic, but it was incompatible.

The vendors of PSCAD provided us with an installable package for Intel Fortran 14, which was compatible. However when we were installing it we were asked for a licence code which we didn’t have (on your website it was suggested that if we installed the latest version of Intel Fortran we would be provided with a licence code that we could use to install older versions of Intel Fortran, but this we couldn’t find this code anywhere).

In the end we managed to install Intel Fortran 14 by using the “trial period” option – I hoped that as Intel is no longer changing for Fortran the trial period would be extended indefinitely,  but in fact it seems to have ended as we are now getting licence error messages (“ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license”).

How do we get a permanent licence for Intel Fortran 14?

Hi OnTheGrid,

 

Thanks for posting your concern. Please know, Intel® has transitioned from providing Intel® Parallel Studio XE as a free tool to providing Intel® oneAPI Toolkits as a free tool. The Intel® Parallel Studio XE that previously used to contain the Intel® Fortran Compiler is a legacy product now. The Intel® oneAPI Toolkits do not require a license to be used. However, it cannot be used to activate a component that was part of the legacy product suite.

 

The Intel® Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition product suite maps to the equivalent Intel® oneAPI Toolkits: Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit + Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit.

 

Yes, the trial period would mean that you could use the product for a trial period to evaluate it or take a trial before using it with a paid product license.

 

As for your query regarding the permanent license, please know the only way left, to get the Intel® Parallel Studio XE suite is by purchasing a commercial or academic license for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits. You may contact our resellers or visit our Webstore for the purchase.

Our licenses are backward-compatible in nature. Since the product contains the Intel® Parallel Studio XE suite it would work with older product versions of the Intel® Parallel Studio XE suite package and its components. 

 

However, please know the Intel® Parallel Studio XE version 2014 is an old and unsupported version. It has undergone deprecation. Due to that our support for such a product version is very limited. You may visit the below link for reference.
