Referencing the Annotations Definitions Directory

You need to specify the directory containing the Intel Advisor definition file as an additional include directory when you compile your program. Intel Advisor installs its annotation definition files into a default directory on your system. For example:

  • With a Visual Studio project or solution for a C/C++ or Fortran application, you need to specify the property Additional Include path. You can use the environment variable ADVISOR_201n_DIR followed by the include directory.

  • With the C/C++ or Fortran command line, use the compiler option -Idir (Linux* OS) or /Idir (Windows* OS), where dir is the directory containing the annotation definition files. You can use the environment variable ADVISOR_201n_DIR followed by the include directory.

  • With Fortran modules, you also need to specify the library name and directory of the annotations definitions to the linker.

  • With a Visual Studio project or solution for a C# program, you need to specify Properties > Add > Existing Item and browse to and select the annotations definitions file.
