Converting Projects to Use a Selected Compiler from the Command Line

You can use the command-line utility
to transform your Intel® C++ projects into Microsoft Visual C++* projects, or vice-versa. The syntax is:
ICProjConvert191.exe <sln_file | prj_files> </VC[:"VCtoolset name"] | /IC[:"ICtoolset name"]> [/q] [/nologo] [/msvc] [/s] [/f]
A path to the solution file, which should be modified to use a specified project system.
A space separated list of project files (or wildcard), which should be modified to use specified project system.
Convert to use the Microsoft Visual C++* project system.
VCtoolset name
The possible values are
(Microsoft Visual Studio* 2017) and
(Microsoft Visual Studio 2019).
Convert to use the Intel® C++ project system.
ICtoolset name
Intel C++ Compiler 19.1
Depending on the integration version, the supported name values may be different.
Starts quiet mode, all information messages (except errors) are hidden.
Suppresses the startup banner.
Sets the compiler to Microsoft Visual C++.
Searches the project files through all subdirectories.
Forces an update to the project even if it has an unsupported type or unsupported properties.
Shows help.
Issue the command
/s /VC
to convert all Intel® C++ project files in the current directory and its subdirectories to use Microsoft Visual C++.
If you uninstall the Intel® C++ Compiler,
remains in the folder
Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\shared files\ia32\Bin
and you can use it to transform Intel® C++ projects back into Microsoft Visual C++.

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.
