Migrate Fortran Compiler 2013 Licenses From Old Hardware To New Hardware

Good afternoon,

I'm at my wit's end, but I am trying to migrate Fortran Compiler 2013 from old hardware to new hardware for my users.  These machines are on a closed-loop network and cannot connect to the Internet.  When attempting to register each serial number, each machine provides a code to submit to the licensing center, and then a .lic file is emailed to me.  Every time I attempt to activate the software, I get a message stating that the .lic file is invalid.  

Installation issues with Parallel Studio XE 2017

Hi All,

I couldn't find a proper forum to post issues during installation, so I am posting it here. I am trying to install Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 on OpenSUSE LEAP 42.1. The installation script gives a list of "Missing Optional Prerequisite" warning after checking the prerequisites, as listed below.

Parallel Studio XE 2017 Installation Hangs


I am installing Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 on a windows 7 64bit system and during the 'Pre-requisite Issues Summary' after I click 'next' it hangs on 'Checking license configuration (8%)'  It used to get past this screen and now it always gets stuck during this area.  I have gone back to older installations and tried Parallel Studio XE 2016 and 2015 and they all get stuck in this same phase now.  I take those .exe installers to another machine and it gets past it no problem.  I have rebooted the machine several times and the problem persists.

Any ideas ?

How can we get a Commercial license for the Houdini library for ARM code execution

Hi, how can we get access to the Houdini library for ARM code execution?

It is preinstalled on mobile phones based on Intel processors.

We would like to use it as a part of our Android Sandbox to run x86 executables on ARM virtual machine.

parallel studio XE Cluster edition installation problem



I was trying to install the parallel studio xe cluster edition for windows in my computer (I have the student software license for Fortran). But there is an error says"package signature verification failed". I have tried 2017,2016,and 2015 edition of this package but they have the same problem with the signature.

When I open went into the digital signatures in the Properties it says "the certificate is not valid for the requested usage".

Can anyone help me with that?

Many thanks

Is Esif_assist_64.exe legit intel file or malware?


I freshly reinstalled windows, installed basic programs from credible sites and installed automatic updates.


I did run a scan with few of antivirus/antimalware programs that I use, none found anything except for Roguekiller. Each time I run roguekiller in normal mode, it finds esif_assist_64.exe in C:/Windows/Temp/DPTF/ folder. Folder cannot be deleted.

DPTF folder along with that file and 2 others was not there after fresh reinstall, but it appeared after windows updates.

Error: A license for FCompL is not available now (-97,29)


A disk crash and rebuild forced us to obtain a new license with the new hostid. After a lmreread, the license now shows the license server and INTEL as UP.  However my users cannot compile.  They get the errors:

Error: A license for FCompL is not available now (-97,29)

and then

ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

the command chklic command shows the FCompL feature is a valid perpetual license.  What am I missing? 

Thank you.
