Build Settings for Supported Languages

Intel Advisor
supports three major languages:
  • C/C++ for Windows and Linux systems
  • C# for Windows systems only
  • Fortran for Windows and Linux systems
The option names for the build settings vary by language and operating system. Building native code targets require both compiler and linking options.
  • For the most current information on optimal C/C++ and Fortran build settings, see .
  • In each C# module that contains
    Intel Advisor
    annotations, you must reference the annotation definitions using the Visual Studio IDE:
    1. Choose
      Properties > Add > Existing Item
    2. Browse to the
      Intel Advisor
      installation directory and select
    If you need to build an assembly, you must explicitly reference the
    definitions file.

Product and Performance Information


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.
