Internal Compiler Error(s) involving PARAMETER constants and /debug-parameters /debug options

Reference number: DPD200418283

Products: Intel® Parallel Studio XE

Version: 2017 Update 2 with Intel® Fortran compiler version:

Intel® Fortran Compiler 17.0 Version Build 20170213 for Windows*

Operating Systems: Windows*  Intel® 64

Problem Description:

  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • Microsoft Windows* 10
  • Microsoft Windows* 8.x
  • Fortran
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Long license checkout on Linux with ipv6


    There is a delay of ~25 seconds when a floating license is checked out.


    Linux* RHEL/CentOS* v7.2

    Root Cause:

    There is a bug in Red Hat 7.2 which adds a 25 second timeout to a library call used to checkout a floating license when IPv6 is disabled.  Bug is described here.

  • Intel® MPI Library 2017 Known Issue: MPI_Bcast Hang on Large User-Defined Datatypes


    On certain platforms (KNL and BDW), using MPI_Bcast on a user-defined datatype larger than 16 KB will cause the Intel® MPI Library 2017 to hang.  This has been seen in Qbox and miniDFT in Quantum Espresso, as well as in the Intel® Math Kernel Library ?gebr2d class of subroutines.


    Changing the default algorithm for large messages for the impacted platforms will avoid the hang.  Set the following environment variable:

  • Intel® MPI Library
  • Message Passing Interface (MPI)
  • Cluster Computing
  • Installing Visual Studio 2015 for Use with Intel Compilers

    The Intel® C++ and Fortran compilers for Windows* require that Microsoft Visual C++* support be present. For Fortran, the C++ libraries and tools are required to build applications. Unlike prior versions, Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 does not install C++ support by default, so if you want to use the Intel compilers with Visual Studio 2015 you must customize the install and enable C++ support.

    When you run the Visual Studio 2015 installer, you will see a screen that looks like this. (Community Edition shown here, but other editions are similar):

  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • Microsoft Windows* 10
  • Microsoft Windows* 8.x
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Beginner
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE

  • Intel® Distribution for Python* Known Issues


    Intel Distribution for Python 2018.0.0

    Conda Update says 2017.0.3 is the latest

    Starting from an existing Intel(R) Distribution for Python (IDP) 3.5.x conda environment, issuing the "conda update" command does not update the environment to IDP 2018.0.0. It only says "All requested packages already installed."

    Solution: Use "conda install python=3.6 -c intel" instead

  • Archived - Intel® RealSense™ SDK Changes for User-Facing Cameras

    The Intel® RealSense™ SDK has been discontinued. No ongoing support or updates will be available.

    Below  please find a high level list of changes between releases of the Intel® RealSense™ SDK for the front facing (user facing, short range) Intel RealSense cameras F200 and SR300.

    Note: Version numbers and release numbers are unfortunately not the same. This article will refer to the version number which until 2016 is equal to the release number + 2 (so R5 is v7),  and 2016 R1 is version 8.

    Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 installer freezes when updating Intel® Cluster Checker 3.0 in some instances

    In the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Installer for Linux*, when updating to Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 Update 2 Cluster Edition through Intel® Software Manager, the online installer may freeze.

    This will happen when the following two conditions are met:

  • Professional
  • Professors
  • Students
  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition
