Switching Back to the Visual C++* Compiler

If your project is using the Intel® C++ Compiler, you can choose to switch back to the Microsoft Visual C++* Compiler by doing the following:

  1. Select the project. To select more than one project, use CTRL-Left Click.
  2. Right-click and select Intel Compiler > Use Visual C++ from the context menu.
This action updates the solution file to use the Visual C++* compiler. All configurations of affected projects are automatically cleaned unless you select Do not clean project(s) . If you choose not to clean projects, you will need to rebuild updated projects to ensure all source files are compiled with the new compiler.


Removing the Intel® C++ Compiler from one Intel® C++ project does not affect other Intel® C++ projects.
