Generating Visual Studio Projects with Intel C++ Compiler and CMake

Generating Visual Studio Projects with Intel C++ Compiler and CMake

Hi,

We use CMake in our project and would like to generate Visual Studio projects which automatically use the Intel C++ Compiler (instead of the VS one).
In our CMakeLists we have:

option(USE_INTEL_COMPILER ON)
if (USE_INTEL_COMPILER)
include(ForceCompiler)
set(CMAKE_VS_PLATFORM_TOOLSET "Intel C++ Compiler XE 13")
CMAKE_FORCE_C_COMPILER(icc Intel)
CMAKE_FORCE_CXX_COMPILER(icpc Intel)
message(STATUS "Using compiler: ${CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER_ID}") # outputs "Using compiler: Intel"
endif()

 This does not seem to work. The generated project files still have the VS compiler configured.

What is the recommended way of cmake-generating projects using icc?

Thanks in advance

Lena

Hi Lena,

Older versions of Microsoft Visual C++ compiler ( versions 4, 5 and 6 ( also known as VS98 ) ) allowed to generate a Makefile from a Project file. I could generate two Makefiles, that is, one with ICC integration and the second one with MSC integration, and then you could use these Makefiles as prototypes for all the rest cases.

Let me know if you're interested.

Take a look at attached make file.

Thanks a lot!
I was hoping for an easier solution, but I'll have a look at your Makefile. 

Adding following parameter to cmake command line might help: -T"Intel C++ Compiler XE 13.0"

 

 

Multiprecision Computing Toolbox for MATLAB

seams no easy solution for this :(

coding for fun

This worked for me - cmake used the VS generator with the Intel compiler.  I found the string for the -T option in the Visual Studio menu: Tools | Options ... | Intel Compilers and Tools | C++ | Compilers, and used one of the listed Platform Toolsets.
