installing FORTRAN Composer XE 2013 on Macbook Air

installing FORTRAN Composer XE 2013 on Macbook Air

I downloaded FORTRAN Composer XE 2013 Update 1 for OS X* to put on my Macbook Air. After starting the installation, a message popped up saying that startup script could not run - error while executing the startup script. Also, a message said that I needed to grant write permissions to /tmp folder and Users/Shared/Library/Application/Support/Intel/Licenses folder. What is all this?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

Those folders are written to by the installation. Apparently your system is set up so that they are not writable.

Thanks for the info - after I got into granting permissions to these files, it installed ok.
