Installation of Intel® Parallel Amplifier on non-English Windows* Operating Systems

There is a known issue installing the Intel® Parallel Amplifier Beta Update 4 on non-English operating systems with a Language (under the Advanced tab of Regional and Language Options) set to Chinese, Korean or Japanese to match the language version of the non-Unicode programs you want to use.

Symptom(s):

After installing the Intel® Parallel Amplifier, the “Amplifier icon” does not appear on the Microsoft Visual* Studio toolbar. When you try to integrate with Microsoft Visual Studio* 2005, you will see the following message:

Error: Failed to integrate the product
Suggestion: Please contact Intel Premier Support for a solution to this problem.

Solution:

1. Change "Language for non-Unicode program" setting from Chinese/Korean/Japanese to English, using "Control Panel"->"Regional and Language Options"->"Advanced"
2. Reboot system
3. Install Intel® Parallel Amplifier
4. Change "Language for non-Unicode programs" setting back to Chinese/Korean/Japanese

The user should see the Intel® Parallel Amplifier icon on the Microsoft* Visual Studio* toolbar now.

it seems not work on my vista pc x64 Chn...

and if i install it several times. the installation file will not run. it seems that the installation file can't be used for too many times on one computer, am i right?


The Beta package will be self-extracted into C:\Program Files\Intel\Download\Amplifier_beta_update?, for example. The user can re-install the product by clicking setup.exe for sure. Delete C:\Program Files\Intel\Download\Amplifier_beta_update? and extract your package again...


i tried to change the "Language for non-Unicode program" from Chinese to English(America)(my system is Vista 32bit), but a new problem comes when i re-install the Parallel Studio :error 1311 raises because file Data1.cab in \Intel Parallel Studio Beta\Installs\1033\uninstall cann't be found. The fact is that file DO EXISTS! When i change the "Language for non-Unicode program" back to Chinese, installation works well, still , “Amplifier icon” does not appear on the Microsoft Visual* Studio toolbar.......


Did you mean that you can install/run the beta product at first time?

The user has to uninstall this beta product under English for "Language for non-Unicode program" first, then re-install the product. Have you rebooted the system? Can you re-extract the Beta packge?

An important notice - this problem has been fixed in future release. The user doesn't need to change Language.


the problem has been solved finally!!!!
here are my steps:(assuming that the Parallel Studio has been successfully installed under Chinese environment)
1. As Peter Wang said: Change "Language for non-Unicode program" setting from Chinese/Korean/Japanese to English, using "Control Panel"->"Regional and Language Options"->"Advanced", then reboot your system.
2.uninstall the Amplifier(Only Amplifier, not Composer).
3.re-install the Parallel Studio, you will see that only about 144MB data will be writen on your system(that's the data of Amplifier).Note that, if you uninstall Composer at step 2, you may unable to re-install Parallel Studio,the install program will tell you that "Data1.cab in \Intel Parallel Studio Beta\Installs\1033\uninstall cann't be found", and this is what i meet at frist……
4.change language back to Chinese, you can see the Amplifier now :)

maybe a little bit prolixity, but i'm really excited, thx for Peter Wang again ^ ^





hello, my problem is that when i change the language chinese to english ,then i roboot my PC,then i try to run the install .exe,but it can't run,the error is "Error reading setup initialization file"...help me
