Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor Developer’s Quick Start Guide For Windows* Host


The Windows* beta program for Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor is no longer in effect as of September 2013.   Intel now officially supports Microsoft Windows* with Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.   Please visit and see the Quick Start guide link on the front page, which will have all of the details on how you can run a production environment with this operating system and Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.

This document will help developers get started writing code and running applications on a system running Windows and that includes the Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor based on the Intel® Many Integrated Core Architecture (Intel® MIC Architecture). It describes the available tools and includes simple examples to show how to get C/C++ and Fortran-based programs up and running. For now, the developer will have to cut/paste the examples provided in the document to their system.

Note that there is a general document “Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessor Developer’s Quick Start Guide” at under the “Overview”tab which is the official document for use with host systems running Linux*; this document is for  customers who are early testers for Windows on the host.    More information on this early enabling program can be found here


This document does:

  1. Walk you through the system registration and Intel® MPSS installation.
  2. Introduce the build environment for Intel MIC Architecture software.
  3. Give an example of how to write code for Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor and build using Intel® Composer XE for Windows.
  4. Demonstrate the use of Intel libraries like the Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL).
  5. Point you to information on how to debug and profile programs running on an Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor.
  6. Share some best known methods (BKMs) developed by users at Intel.
  7. Cover each tool in detail. Please refer to the user guides for the individual tools.
