Intel Fortran Installation Issues

Operating System: Windows 10 Enterprise Version 1803, 64-bits
Compiler Version: Intel(R) Parallel Studio XE 2019 Update 5 Cluster Edition for Windows* 
Visual Studio Versions: Visual Studio Professional 2017 Version 15.9.17
                        Visual Studio Professional 2019 Version 16.3.10

I am behind a web proxy that requires password authentication, so most of the install procedures that require an installer to automatically connect to the Internet do not work.  I would like to do my installation pretending that my machine is disconnected from the Internet, especially since we will be later installing another copy of the software on a machine that actually IS disconnected from the Internet.

I installed the 30-day trial version license file (not just the serial number) in the proper location, but unfortunately the Intel License Manager doesn't seem to know about my license file.  It keeps asking for my serial number, and when I provide it, the License Manager tries to access the internet and fails because it doesn't seem to know how to get past the authenticating proxy.

I downloaded the stand-alone installer (all 3 GB of it) and the installation appeared to complete successfully (except for the VTune Amplifier, which I decided to skip for now).  Unfortunately there was no Fortran integration in Visual Studio 2017 or 2019, and when I looked for installed components under Help --> About Visual Studio I saw Visual C++, Intel Advisor, and Intel Inspector along with several third-party products such as Visual Assist X and Qt Visual Studio Integration, but no Intel Visual Fortran.  

After much trial and error I was able to install the Intel Visual Fortran integration by following the steps for Issue 8 and for Issue 1, in that order, in

Is there some easier way to install this software, without jumping through all these hoops?  Are there offline installation instructions available?

It has been a few years since I was involved with this, but when you install a purchased version, one of the "alternative" activation methods supports doing so when not connected to the Internet. I don't think this works with a trial version, but I am unsure.

See fand or tips on configuring Visual Studio for use with Intel Fortran

If you need more licensing or installation help, you'll need to submit a support request to the Intel Online Service Center (not this forum.)

Hi Intel Support,
1) I uninstalled "Intel® Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition for Fortran Windows* ".
2) I uninstalled "Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 Professional".
3) I want to start from a "clean slate".
4) What is the exact procedure for installing the above 2 SWs and making them work properly with each other?

Please clarify. Thank you.

Install Visual Studio 2019 first, following the instructions at

Then install Intel Parallel Studio.

Hi Steve,
           I followed the instructions in above link.
1) I first removed from my LT all Microsoft VS versions and also Intel-PSXE.
2) Then, i installed Microsoft-VS-2019-Professional.
3) Then, i installed Intel-PS-XE. It ended with a message that "integration with Microsoft VS is unsuccessful"
4) So i repaired the installation by following instructions in .
   4a) Upon right-click on file C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\shared files\VS Integration\VS16\Intel Fortran\VFPackages\VFProj.dll and checking its properties, i see Details File version =
   4b) Text in link "" says "Right click on VFProj.dll and select Properties, then click on the Version tab. Look at the "File Version" displayed. It will be in the form of 11.1.3464.2008. The first two numbers (11.1 here) indicate the compiler version. These must match that of the most recent version of the compiler installed. The last number (2008 here) indicates the Visual Studio version this DLL is for. If the compiler version does not match, uninstall Intel Visual Fortran, delete the entire "Intel Fortran" folder under the appropriate Microsoft Visual Studio folder, then reinstall Intel Fortran."

5) Despite the potential issue in step 4), i proceeded. I ran integrate.bat twice per step-3 of above link.

6) Next, per, i repaired the certificates as explained in "#8 -- Visual Studio 2017 integration failed to install correctly on offline system". I could not find certificates "Intel External Issuing CA 7B" and "COMODO RSA Extended Validation Code Signing CA".

7) Then, i closed all the windows and started MSVS-2019. Upon selecting new project, i do not see an option for "Intel Fortran".

Please help.

Thank you.



At this point I suggest you open a ticket with the Intel Online Service Center. I do note that you didn't say that you followed the instructions in the link I posted above. Is your system connected to the Internet? If so, the "workaround" for offline systems does not apply to you.

         I did follow the instructions in the link that you posted. Yes, my LT is connected to the Internet.

In that case I have no other suggestions to offer. Please get in touch with Intel Support for more help.
