How do I get an older version of an Intel® Software Development Product?

Older versions of products are available in the Intel® Registration Center (IRC). Your license is good for any version or update released on or before the "support end date" of your license.

Installing an older version of a new product

Downloading a newly purchased product for the first time, the default download is that of the newest version. However, you can choose to install an older version of the product by following these steps:

  1. In the lower part of the download page you will see a section “Additional downloads, latest updates and prior versions”.
  2. Expanding that section will display all the previous versions available for that product.
  3. You will be able to choose the year and Update # of the version you wish to install.
  4. To start download click on the filename of the file you want to download.

Installing an older version from Intel Registration Center

If you wish to install an older version of a one of your products follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the Intel® Registration Center by entering your Login information. You will see a list of all the products you have subscribed to. Note:  Expired registrations are shown only if you click on the "expired products " toggle in the header section, see image below:
  2. From the list of subscribed products, choose the product of interest. You will see a list of all components in the product subscription history.
  3. Choose the component of interest or click on the Download link. You will be presented with a list of available versions, and if appropriate, updates for the selected version.
  4. While older compiler versions are available, not all builds within a version are. Updates or builds within a version are compatible, use the closest build within your selected version. Note that for older releases, only the last update is typically provided. (For a table that tells you which product version contains which compiler version, see here.)
  5. Click on the version you want - wait while the page refreshes. Then you can click on the update you want (if applicable). The page will refresh again and you will be presented with file types and names.
  6. To start download click on the filename of the file you want to download.
