I am using MPSS 3.1 + Intel C++ ComposerXE 2013 SP1 + Microsoft Visual Studio 2012. I need to build some native MIC applications. I can build simple native samples using the Intel compiler in command line, but for my target application I would like to use Visual Studio IDE. When I add the compiler option to target native execution on MIC, my project does not compile. The compiler appears to be unable to deal with the command line options that are passed by Visual Studio based on other the project settings. I researched the subject in the documentation and online and could not any explicit statements whether it is possible to compile native MIC binaries from Visual Studio.
So the question is: Is it possible to use Visual Studio IDE to manage and build projects intended to produce native MIC binaries, or am I limited to the command line mode?
Thank you in advance.
