Performance Tools for Software Developers - Intel® compiler updates

Up to date Intel® compilers are available from the Intel® Registration Center under the Data Administration » Downloads and may be installed using any non-expired release, evaluation, or non-commercial license.

  • Linux*
  • Apple macOS*
  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Microsoft* MSBuild and Team System Team Build Are Not Supported

    The Intel® C++/Fortran Compiler 9.x or 10.x for Windows* do not support Microsoft MSBuild and Team System Team Build.

    If you'd like to build the Microsoft Visual C++* project from the command line or a batch file, use devenv.exe, the Visual Studio* launcher. For more detailed information on how to do batch build with Intel® C++ Compiler for Windows*, please refer to FAQ Support for Batch Build.

  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler - Problems Using Profile Guided Optimization and OpenMP* Concurrently

    Use of Profile Guided Optimization with OpenMP* may substantially increase the execution time for the generation of the profile (.dyn file). This is a known issue which is being addressed. The use of profile guided optimization in conjunction with OpenMP is not recommended.

  • Linux*
  • Apple macOS*
  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • Fortran
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • OpenMP*
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler for Windows* - Integration with Microsoft Visual Studio* .NET no longer works on upgrade to 8.1

    Symptom(s):

    The Intel® Fortran integration is no longer available within the Microsoft Visual Studio* .NET 2002 or 2003 (VS .NET 2002 or VS .NET 2003) IDE. Intel® Fortran projects can no longer be created or opened.

    Cause:

    On systems where VS .NET 2003 is installed on a drive other than C:, the Intel® Visual Fortran Compiler for Windows* 8.1 installation writes certain files on the C: drive in error.

    Solution:

  • Microsoft Windows* (XP, Vista, 7)
  • Fortran
  • Option -Bsymbolic can cause dangerous side effects

    -Bsymbolic (defined at the following location: http://sourceware.org/binutils/docs-2.16/ld/Options.html#Options)†  may seem to solve many problems. Unfortunately, –Bsymbolic is a dangerous option which can often result in some nonintuitive side effects.

  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Performance Tools for Software Developers - Using -Bsymbolic Results in Infinite Loop in __intel_cpu_indicator_init

    Symptom(s):

    When you create a shared library linking libirc.a statically (for example using –i_static) and using –Bsymbolic your application gets stuck in an infinite loop in __intel_cpu_indicator_init.

    Cause:

  • Linux*
  • C/C++
  • Fortran
  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
