After installing Intel Visual Fortran Compiler XE 2011 Update 10 for Windows (VS10 shell), attempting to start the Command Prompt "Intel 64 Visual Studio 2010 mode" starts a prompt with the message:
Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011 SP1
Copyright (C) 1985-2012 Intel Corporation. All rights reserved.
Intel Composer XE 2011 Update 10 (package 325)
The specified configuration type is missing. The tools for the
configuration might not be installed.
as a result, attempting to run a sample test program, using ifort test.for generates the .obj file but fails with the message:
ifort: error #10037: could not find 'link'
History of installation:
- Visual Studio was not installed on this machine
- First the incorrect installer was used, i.e w_fcompxe_novsshell_2011.9.300.exe
- uninstalled IVF and installed it again using the correct installer: w_fcompxe_2011.10.325.exe, so that VS 2010 shell is also installed.
the batch file ifortvars.bat seems to always need an argument. this seems new in this version. Is that correct?
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
Thanks in advance
