Intel Composer XE's C++ compiler does not integrate with Visual studio 2010

Intel Composer XE's C++ compiler does not integrate with Visual studio 2010

We installed Intel Composer XE suites that included Fortran and C++ compiler and both are supposed to integrate with our Visual studio 2010. However, only Fortran compiler shows up in Visual studio and not C++. We tried to installed separately with C++ package only but it still doesn't show up. What happened and how do we get it to work on Visual Studio 2010?

Thanks

Giap,

The Fortran integration is different than the C++ Compiler integration into Visual Studio 2010. For C++ you can switch forth and back compilers via the project properties > Intel Composer XE > Use Visual C++ / Use Intel C++.

Please extract one of the sample solutions from the C++ Composer XE installation, for example C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Composer XE 2013 SP1\Samples\en_US\C++\NQueens.zip\ and load the solutions (.sln) file into Visual Studio.

Right-click on a project, e.g. nq-cilk > Intel Composer XE <version> > Use Intel C++. If the Intel Composer XE menu item isn't there you may not have installed the Visual Studio 2010 integration.

Regards, Hubert.
