Service is not running after Intel MPI RTE installs on 32 bit OS

Service is not running after Intel MPI RTE installs on 32 bit OS

After installing the Intel mpi rte on a 32 bit operating system, the smpd service is not installed. The service entry is missing from the windows services dialog and attempting to invoke mpiexec hangs. On the surface the installer runs to completion. Running smpd -install from the bin directory as a post-step will install the service successfully. This is supposed to happen automatically during the install and causes us significant problems.
Can you guys reproduce this? What is the solution?

  • intel mpi rte version4.0.3.010

Hi Adam,

I have submitted a request to correct this behavior. For now, the only solution is to manually install the SMPD service after the installer has finished. I'll let you know when there is any change in this issue.

Alright we are configuring our setup to do the smpd -install manually for now. Thanks.

Hi Adam,

This has been corrected in our latest release of the Intel® MPI Library, Version 4.1. Please try this version and make certain it works for you.
