To use the Intel® Compilers with Microsoft Visual Studio* 2017 you must customize the install and enable additional workloads.
For Intel® C++ and Fortran Compilers for Windows*, it is necessary to install the Desktop development with C++ component from Visual Studio. This component is not installed by default. The Intel® Parallel Studio XE installation will detect the missing component and provide a warning, but the installation can still proceed. The component may be installed when Microsoft Visual Studio 2017* is first installed, or may be installed later.
To install the Desktop development with C++ component:
If Microsoft Visual Studio 2017* is not installed on the system:
If Microsoft Visual Studio 2017* is already installed on the system:
Professional Edition as an example is shown below, but other editions are similar.
For Intel® C++ compiler for Android*, select “Mobile development with C++” workload.
If you already installed Visual Studio 2017 and did not select the required workloads, rerun the Visual Studio installer and change the options as described above.
For information on Installing Visual Studio 2015 for Use with Intel Compilers please see this article.

Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
