Intel® Fortran Compiler for Windows* - Required and optional Microsoft* development software

This article provides an overview of the Microsoft development software required to use Intel® Visual Fortran Composer XE 2013 SP1.  For more details, refer to the product Release Notes. Abbreviated information on older versions is below.

Microsoft Development Software Requirements

To use the Microsoft Visual Studio* development environment or command-line tools to build IA-32 or Intel® 64 architecture applications, one of:

  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013* Professional Edition or higher with C++ component installed (requires Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2013 SP1 Update 1 or later)
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2012* Professional Edition or higher with C++ component installed
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2010* Professional Edition or higher with C++ component installed
  • Microsoft Visual Studio 2008* Standard Edition or higher with C++ and “X64 Compiler and Tools” components installed [1]
  • Intel® Visual Fortran development environment based on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell (included with some license types of Intel® Fortran Compiler) [2]
  • Intel® Visual Fortran development environment based on Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Shell (included with compiler versions 11.0, 11.1 and Intel® Visual Fortran Composer XE 2011 through Update 5.)

To use command-line tools only to build IA-32 architecture applications, one of::

  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2010* Express Edition
  • Microsoft Visual C++ 2008* Express Edition

To use command-line tools only to build Intel® 64 architecture applications, one of:

  • Microsoft Windows Software Development Kit for Windows 7 and .NET
    Framework 4.0*

Notes:

  1. Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Standard Edition installs the “x64 Compiler and Tools” component by default – the Professional and higher editions require a “Custom” install to select this.
  2. Intel® Visual Fortran development environment based on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell is included with Academic and Commercial licenses for Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2013. It is not included with Evaluation or Student licenses. This development environment provides everything necessary to edit, build and debug Fortran applications. Some features of the full Visual Studio product are not included, such as:
    • Resource Editor (see ResEdit*, a third-party tool, for a substitute)
    • Automated conversion of Compaq* Visual Fortran projects
