Inquiry of Intel Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition license


I would like to purchase a license of Intel Parallel Studio XE Composer Edition for Fortran Windows, but I have an inquiry about the license file/key.

I do my academic research at home (Desktop A) and in my university lab (Desktop B) a lot. So is it possible to install the software using the same license file or key in both Desktops A and B, but while I am using the software in Desktop A, the software is not allowed to use in Desktop B, similar to license dongles.

Thank you.

Linking IMSL 7 with IVF 2016


I have just upgraded to the latest version of IVF (parallel studio xe 20016) and IMSL (7) (I have the composer edition with IMSL).  I am running Visual Studio Shell 2010.  I have legacy code dating back to CVF which uses IMSL routines, which includes the following lines in the main program (which worked with the previous version of IVF:

INCLUDE 'link_fnl_static.h'

!DEC$ OBJCOMMENT LIB:'libiomp5md.lib'

When I try to compile the code in the new fortran version I get a the following errors:

Fortran equivalent to Property Let?

I have a large set of code that has "global" arrays in it.  These arrays are arguments to many different SUBROUTINEs in the code.  I would like to create a module (or two or three) which make these global arrays PRIVATE but provide accessors to these arrays.  As right-hand side (RHS) arguments it is simple to create something in the module like

Error while trying to use an alternate preprocessor


I have tried unsuccessfully to use an alternate preprocessor (which I wrote myself) with Intel Visual Fortran. With the version or the 2017 beta version it fails with the same error.

Basically I activated the preprocessor in the project settings (option /fpp) and I use /Qlocation,fpp to define my preprocessor:

Fortran 11.0 Compiler


There was already a similar thread from 2012, but I am starting a new one. 

Is there a place to get the Intel Fortran 11.0 Compiler for academic research purposes? It has to be exactly this version in order for it to be compatible with another software (ADINA). 

Thank You,


beginner, looking for tutorials on IVF

Hi all,

I am planning to use intel visual fortran and visual studio for my  MSc thesis. However i am totally new to the programming language and to the software. Are there any step-by-step tutorials or beginners guides available that are specifically focused on intel visual fortran so I can learn how to use it?

Many thanks!


Different results for different redistributables (15.4 and 16.1)


I have a program that is compiled with Intel Fortran 15.4. First I executed it on my workstation (Windows 7) with Intel Fortran 15.4 redistributables installed (w_fcompxe_redist_ia32_2015.4.221.msi) and then I installed Intel Fortran 16.1 redistributables (ww_ifort_redist_ia32_2016.1.146.msi) on the same workstation and found that program results are different. The binary was the same, I didn't recompile it. The problem was reproduced on the server (Windows Server 2012 R2).


1. Is it a bug in compiler or expected/acceptable behavior?
