I have downloaded and installed MS SDK 7.1, and I am now trying to install Parallel Studio XE 2011. In the start of the installation, I get this notice:
Microsoft Visual Studio 2010* Shell is available for installing from this package.
Please note that Visual Studio Shell does not support use of Intel C++ Composer XE - it is for use with Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE only.
I can proceed with the installation and all works well, but I can not use C++ in Visual Studio what so ever. I have used the guides from Intel for the composer. When I open the C++-part in the Parallel package, Visual Studio starts, but without any apparent support of C++. Am I using wrong Visual Studio? Do I need a paid version of VS? Note that the SDK 7.1 is freely available from Microsoft.
