Intel® Advisor XE

Advisor does not let my program read external files.

I have a program that must read a configuration file when it starts but whenever I start this program inside advisor the program does not read this external configuration file. If I execute the program outside of advisor the program loads this file fine.

Is there something I can do so that my program reads the config file?

I had this problem with inspector and I fixed it by going to properties and changing the working directory but I cant find any properties dialog box.

Advisor XE GUI support for 32 bit

I’m using Intel Parallel Studio XE 2013 on a 32bit VM machine on my laptop. But the advisor XE does not have GUI support for 32 bit.

Advisor not loaded correctly in Visual Studio 2010

I have problems using Advisor on my computer. After I open a Fortran solution, I get a message "The 'Intel Advisor XE 2013' package did not load correctly". If I click "Yes" to continue to show this error, it appear 2-3 times before the solution is opened and parsing files is finished. The solution then opens successfully, but Advisor toolbar icons are grayed and Advisor cannot be used. The same message is displayed if I select Help - About Visual Studio in the Visual Studio main menu.

I am running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, Service Pack 1, with latest updates.

Obtaining accurate time measurement on Survey Report


I am using Intel Advisor XE 2013 (build 270011) on Linux. I am using the Survey analysis to profile my program (compiled with gcc and flags: -g and -O3). However, every time that I run the analysis I get different execution percentages for a loop of interest, although everytime I am using the same input data and parameters. The total execution time of my program is around 0.72 s.

I want to ask you:

Is it expected to have different execution percentages when profiling using Advisor?

Are there any needed compiler/linker flags that I forgot?

Not sure this is the right forum, but I am getting the following error message when I try and download the latest version (Version 2013 Initial Release or Update 1)  of Intel Advisor XE

We are unable to find registrations/downloads matching this request.

I have an education license for both Windows and Linux and am seeing the same error message.  Any ideas?
