Microsoft Windows* 8.x

What to buy

My company just purchased me a new PC.  It's Windows 7, 64-bit.  My old PC was Windows XP and I had Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6 with F90SQL and MS Visual Studio 2005.  I installed MS VS 2012 but cannot install Compaq VS 6.6.  My applications that I build will be used by fellow employees.  What product do I purchase so that my Fortran and F90SQL routines work?


Older Version of Intel Fortran Compiler



I installed Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 SP1 initial release, by downloading older version from the additional downloading section as suggested by you. However, I cannot see the command prompt to copy the target and link it to Abaqus software. Please refer to following link. this is what I want to do. I am able to see it with 2015 latest version but not the one mentioned. Please suggest! I am spending time over it but I am not able to solve the issue!


OpenMP scheduling overhead and analysis

Hi, all

I was programming with OpenMP,  and some points are not clear to me. 

1) Does OpenMP of Intel has better performance than the GCC version? If it is true, how much benefit can Intel version gets?

2) will  OpenMP compiler and runtime introduce barrier or memory fence operations? How to measure the overhead of these operations.

3) Does the overhead of scheduling in OpenMP increases with the increasing of thread number? Are there some methods to measure the overhead? (Either intel or GCC version is ok.)

    Is OpenMP not supporting Fortran 2003 (PASS, Finalization, etc.)

    Hi all,

    My question is related to integration of OpenMP in Fortran with some features in standard 2003/2008

    In the document of latest 4.0 release it is stated that some features are not supported. The problem is : such features are in my opinion very important for new Object-Oriented paradigm as introduced in new standards.

    I made some simple code containing type extension and pass atribute. The OpenMP work and a get  speedup of 12x. ( on 12 cores !!!)

  • Hook not executed

    I have a QWIN program that uses a DLL which sends status and progress events.
    The events are registered using RegisterWindowsMessage.

    In order to react to these messages I have set up a hook like this:

    use ifwin, only: SetWindowsHookEx, GetCurrentThreadId, WH_GETMESSAGE
    ! ...
    m_hHook = SetWindowsHookEx(WH_GETMESSAGE, %LOC(V3MessagesHook), 0, GetCurrentThreadId())

    The signature of the V3MessagesHook function is like this:
