FCompW and FLEXlm Licensing issue after upgrade of Visual Studio 2012 to Update 3


After upgrading Visual Studio 2012 to Upgrade 3 so that I could use Git for source control, I cannot compile due to licence errors.  I thought that maybe VS had lost track of something so that if I upgraded to Fortran 14 that might fix the issue.  The upgrade to Fortran 14 took all day.  I also had to give it permission to download extra items off the internet for some reason.  I am therefore reluctant to de-install Fortran and then install it again just in the hope that that will fix things.  Hope you can advise on what I should do.

Error messages are:

1>------ Build started: Project: CombVal_JIT_Run, Configuration: Debug Win32 ------

Hi Warwick,

Please send me your serial number via private message.  We'll work from there.

I see that the directory associated with the INTEL_LICENSE_FILE environment variable   ( C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Intel\Licenses  ) is empty.

I have sent my serial number some time ago - to no avail so far.  I would like to contact Premier Support but I don't know what product to select.  A search for 'Fortran' yields nothing.

I requested our Registration Center email you a copy of the license file (.lic) associated with your S/N. Try placing the file (with the .lic extension in tact) into the directory you noted earlier for the INTEL_LICENSE_FILE variable and see if you can then compile.

If you did not receive the file, then log into the Intel Registration Center. On the main landing page, click on the Product Subscription Name that appears (i.e. Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE for Windows) and that should render details about your subscription. Under the License area, click Manage. Under the next view near the bottom is a button, Resend license file to my email. Click that and proceed as described earlier once you receive the license file.
