Hello Devorah,

I have a big issue, I donwloaded the Visual Studio Professional 2017 and the last version of Fortran (Intel(R) Parallel Studio XE 2018 Update 1). I tried to install it and I believe the installation was ok, but when I want to run my projects. The complete explication about my issue is in this link. I hope with the highest of hopes any help. Thank you.

I installed parallel studio 2018 using via e-mail seral number as a student, I have a licence file (l_4BFNNJZD.lic) in opt/intel/licences/ directory

# SerialNumber=ST5V-4BFNNJZD


I have "Error: A license for Comp-FL is not available"

That means my installation is okay, my .bashrc is okay, but my license file is bad.  I would need to get the right working license file that I get through the link in the email that Intel sends me and I put it in the /opt/intel/licenses directory.

(I have Ubuntu 14.04. Intel® Core™ i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz × 4 , 64-bit)

Could you help me?

Best Wishes,
