Published:10/29/2015   Last Updated:10/29/2015

Reference Number: DPD200377642

Version: 2016 Initial Release and Update 1

Product: Intel® Parallel Studio XE

Operating System: Windows*

Problem Description:

The problem occurs when performing a custom installation of Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 on a Japanese version of Windows* OS where the custom installation specifies an installation path that contains non-English characters. This results in any documents selected from the Microsoft Visual Studio* "Help > Intel® Compilers and Libraries" pull down menu to fail to launch and the browser's default page appearing instead.

Workarounds:

  1. Install product in the standard place or avoid non-English characters in the custom installation path.
  2. Manually open the help files listed below using an internet browser:

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.
