Hello, We are a research group who decided to purchase Intel Composer XE (Windows). We are not interested in aquiring a separate IDE/source code editor for this, and we want to use the one provided by you, Microsoft* Visual Studio 2010 Shell*,since that would be enough for our needs; however I am a bit confused about the product that we will recieve, for the following reasons: 1. In your product brief you state that "For developers using Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE for Windows, the Microsoft* Visual Studio 2010 Shell* is also included.". Since Intel Composer XE (Windows)includes Intel Visual Fortran Composer XEdoes that mean that when aquiring Intel Composer XE (Windows)we will get Microsoft* Visual Studio 2010 Shell*? 2. In the evaluation section, for Intel Composer XE (Windows)you state that "If, at the end of evaluation, you choose to purchase Intel Composer XE 2011 for Windows, you must also purchase a license for a supported Microsoft development product if you do not already have one."<---- WHY?. If we get the Microsoft* Visual Studio 2010 Shell*, isn't that enough to start the development process - that is, to have the C++ compiler and the other products that you provide integrated with VS2010 shell? Because "Intel Composer XE products for Windows integrate into Microsoft Visual Studio* 2005, 2008 and 2010. This means all parts of Intel Composer XE Intel C++, Intel Fortran and the Performance Libraries are usable through Visual Studio." I repeat: we want that after buyingIntel Composer XE (Windows)to be able to use the products (and write our code) without additional spendings. Is this possible? I would really appreciate a good clarification of these subjects.
