Intel Parallel Studio XE Workstation Installation

If you want to use the Intel compilers from your Linux workstation, then you should follow the instructions below. This allows you to run the compilers on your own computer instead of having to log into one of our clusters. The binary generated should work without modification on the cluster. If you are a researcher at USF, please request the license information through the [IntelCS#ReportingBugs | email link below ]

  1. If you have a previous version of the Intel Compilers installed, you will still need to do a complete new install. It is suggested that you move the current install directory to a back up directory to save any local modifications. These modifications will have to be performed manually on the new directory.
  2. Download the .tgz file from the following link:
  3. The tarfile unpacks the files into the current directory, so it is suggested that you make a separate directory for instance, /usr/local/src/intel/
  4. Move the tarfile to the directory that you created in step 3 and unpack it with the command:
    • tar -zxvf parallel_studio_xe_2019_update1.tgz
  5. Follow the Installation and licensing guides listed below.
