Visual Studio ist mandatory for Intel Fortran?

I'm sorry, but I lost track somehow. Am I right that MS Visual Studio is mandatory for IVF to compile and link a Fortran program and create an .exe file or a library?

Intel Fortran uses tools (linker, librarian, EXE/OBJ dumper) and libraries (C runtime) from the Microsoft SDK or Visual Studio. Intel bundles a version of VS with the Fortran compiler for Windows. For symbolic GUI debugging, you will need the VS debugger.

You do not need a separate Visual Studio purchase/installation unless you want to develop in other languages (C++, C#, VB, ..).

You can compile and link from the command line -- you do not need Visual Studio at all.

Thanks for your answers. The reason I asked was that my former employer bought IVF for a single user, without Visual Studio to save money. The IT specialists there were not able to get the whole mess going, and asked me for help. They had already spent so much efforts and time that it would have been cheaper to spend the money for the VS license instead fiddling around. My conclusion from that experience: license and install VS, and integrate IVF the usual way, if you are not familiar enough with the intricacies of Windows and IVF, or you have a very special reason to avoid VS. Using IVF with VS is generally less expensive, and also more beneficial for the end user.

Doesn't IVF automatically come with a shell? Can't do the full resources but can get most programs compiled.

Yes, Intel Visual Fortran includes a Fortran development environment based on Visual Studio 2010 with everything you need to edit, build and debug Fortran programs. You don't need to buy anything else. Sometimes what confuses people is that we offer different product downloads, one with the VS Shell and one without - the latter is for people who already have VS installed, saving hundreds of megabytes of download.

If you're having a problem with this configuration, please let us know and we'll help.

Steve, thanks a lot for the clarification. I sent your comment to the guy responsible for the IVF installation. He admitted that he possibly picked the wrong installation file. I hope he is able to repair the mistake on his own next week.

If somebody doesn't like Visual Studio 2010 Shell then Intel Visual Fortran could be manually integrated with Eclipse IDE for building executables ( debugging won't be possible (!) ).

As soon as IVF installation is done a Service Pack needs to be installed and search for files with msi extension in a directory where IVF is installed.

You still need to install the package with VS Shell in order to get the Microsoft tools and libraries used for building from the command line. With that, you could use Eclipse as an IDE (with the Photran FDT), but Intel can't help you with that.

Sergey, I don't know what you're referring to about the Service Pack. You certainly can install the VS2010 Service Pack 1, and I'd recommend it, but it's not required.

It is located in a directory [ VS2010InstallDir ]\Intel Fortran\SP1 and a file name is VsShell2010SP1.msi.

That will be automatically installed if you install Fortran on top of VS2010 SP1. If you install SP1 later, then you will need that .msi - you'll get a message about it when you start VS.

The 2nd case happened and I remember that a message was displayed. That is why I know about Intel Fortran SP1.

That's not a SP1 for Intel Fortran. It's an update that you need if you have VS2010 SP1.

>>...That's not a SP1 for Intel Fortran. It's an update that you need if you have VS2010 SP1.

It was created by Intel ( look at properties and version information ) and the name of the folder ..\Intel Fortran\SP1 where the update is located is very confusing.

I know what it is - but it is an update needed when VS2010SP1 is installed, hence the name. It is not a "SP" for Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE. I agree the name could be confusing in this regard.

Rase, sorry for a small deviation from the subject and just to complete that discussion here is a screenhsot:
