Hi Stacky,

Please let me know the version and edition of your Visual Studio.  And, do you have any older Intel compilers integrated to your Visual Studio already?

Thank you.

You probably have Intel C++ Compiler 12.1 installed in your system.  Please try to remove it and then install Intel Parallel Studio XE.  Let me know if this works.

If uninstallation doesn't work for some reason, you might need Windows Installer Cleanup Utility to uninstall.  Simple run it and use it to uninstall Intel C++ Compiler 12.1, even if it does not appear in Add or Remove Programs. Then try installing IPS XE again.


Hello Feilong,

     Greetings! you spotted it correctly. I used windows installer cleanup utility to clean up other instances of intel compilers and it worked.

Thank you very much


Glad to hear that.  Thank you for your issue submission.
