text editor error

text editor error

When I try to open the external text editor for this file. It says :


Cannot open the external text editor for this file. Suggestion:

make sure the text editor is set in the EDITOR or VISUAL environment

variable and supports a filename as an argument.


I must have failed to do something when I was setting up this program

on the nqueens problem. Please tell me how to fix this problem.

 Any help appreciated Thanks in advance.

Hello newport_j,

Depending on the OS you are on, you need to point the EDITOR or VISUAL environment variable to an appropriate editor (executable). Please set the variable prior to launching the Intel(R) Advisor XE 2013 GUI.

Here are instructions about how to do it on Windows:

and how to do it on Linux:

Please let me know if I can help further.

Thank you.
