I am starting with a fresh install of Windows 10. I have read all I could find about the problems of using Visual Studio 2017 Professional with Intel Parallel Studio 2017. I have done the following.
Start with both not installed. Not much of anything installed on the machine.
Installed Visual Studio 2017 professional 15.3 with only the C++ for windows development option, nothing else. Rebooted.
Install Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 Update 4 for Windows. It complains that Intel C++ compiler will not work because none of the supported environments is found on your computer.
I have tried uninstalling and installing. I have even installed Visual Studio 2015 Professional. Parallel Studio detects visual studio 2015 but won't allow me to check Visual Studio 2017.
I have tried rebooting.
I have started with clean versions of both, downloaded from Intel and Microsoft.
