Pre-requisite and Activation Issues in Installing Intel (R) Parallel Studio XE 2017 for Windows


I am installing Intel Parallel Studio XE 2017 on a windows 10 64 bit system on non-Intel processor. During the 'Pre-requisite Issues Summary' checking phase, there are a lot of notes as below:

System reboot may be required.

For extended GPU analysis with Intel(R) VTune(TM) Amplifier XE 2017 on Intel(R) HD Graphics and Intel(R) Iris(TM) Graphics, make sure to reboot the system before data collection.


The product version does not support hardware event-based sampling for the Microprocessor in this system.

How to renew expired license for student version?

Hello everybody,

I am sorry if this question has already been posted. But I did not find a matching thread. Please refer me to the fitting thread in case this question has already been posted.

I have an Intel Parallel Studio XE 2016 Version (I think Update 3). Recently my STUDENT license expired. I generated a new license and put the license file into "/Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses" (I have a Mac with OSX 10.11). Furthermore I changed the owner and group of the license file to "root" and "wheel". But I still get the error message:

License Problem

Host ID is required to register a license. According to this article, Host ID is the MAC address of eth0. However, what my PC has is enp0s25 rather than eth0. So, I used the MAC address of enp0s25 to register a license and placed it in /opt/intel/licenses/. 

When I executed icc, it gives the following information:

Multiple compiler and libraries folder in installation directory


I first installed Intel parallel studio 2016 update 1, then update 3 and now update 4.

In my installation directory at C:\Program Files (x86)\IntelSWTools there are multiple directories for each of the above installation named as




each one sizing in multiple of GBs.

My question is, is it important to keep all of them? or can I remove the Update 1 and Update 3 and save storage space?


Broken link to obtain license open-source projects


I am trying to access this link:

On the bottom of the webpage, there is a link to "Linux*", and it seems to be broken ("This is awkward... We couldn't find what you were looking for.".

How I apply for a open-source license for Intel Composer Fortran/C++ version? Thanks.
