Using the Command Line on Windows*

The compiler provides a shortcut to access the command line with the appropriate environment variables already set.
Instructions and menu options may vary by Windows* version.
To invoke the compiler from the command line:
  1. Open the Windows
    Start
    menu.
  2. Scroll down the list of apps (programs) in the
    Start
    menu and find the
    Intel Parallel Studio XE 2020
    folder.
  3. Left click on the folder name and select your component.
    The command prompts shown are dependent on the versions of Microsoft Visual Studio* you have installed on your machine.
  4. Right click on the command prompt icon to pin it to your taskbar.
    This step is optional.
The command line opens.
You can use any command recognized by the Windows command prompt, plus some additional commands.
Because the command line runs within the context of Windows, you can easily switch between the command line and other applications for Windows or have multiple instances of the command line open simultaneously.
When you are finished working in a command line, use the
exit
command to close and end the session.

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.
