I need to run older version of Intel Fortran compiler on my Ubuntu 10.10 so that some old style Fortran 77 code can be built.
I've already got a Serial number from the registration center. Unfortunately, this serial number doesn't work for Intel visual fortran composer 9.0, though it works well for the latest version of Intel Fortran composer XE.
After entering the serial number, the error message is given as follows,
Please type your selection or Serial Number : XXXX-XXXXXXXX-

I wondered if this problem could be solved by using a license file. So I tried to generate a license file on the Intel registration center according to this article "https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/older-version-installation".
However, no valid link was found on that page.
Could you please tell me how to fix this problem?
