How do I add the Intel C++ Composer XE 2013 SP1 to Visual C++ Express 2013?
I suppose, if you are satisfied with command line operation in 32-bit mode (and other limitations), you could use the Qlocation,link option to point to the folder where VC put link.exe, e.g. (from a VS 2012 version installed on 64-bit Windows):
-Qlocation,link,"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\VC\bin\"
I put such options in icl.cfg, but you would try it first in the icl command line.
If finding link.exe isn't the issue you are facing, showing what you are trying and the resulting diagnostics would be important.
if you're using the VS2013 express IDE, the Intel C++ compiler can not be used within it. It is a limitation of VS "express" edition.
But you can use Intel C++ compiler from the command line. Check [start] menu to open the command window from Intel compiler menu.
