Our IT folks have informed us we need to migrate from our 32-bit WinXP systems to Windows 7 systems. Great. They just set up a test computer with:
R2013a (both 32-bit and 64-bit installed) +
Intel Fortran Composer XE 2013 (trial) +
MSVC 2012 (trial) +
MSVC 2010 (trial) +
I am supposed to test these to make sure they work together before they purchase the Fortran Composer & MSVC. Basically we need to get a MATLAB + Fortran + C/C++ suite working together before they are willing to convert all of our machines to Windows 7.
Well, I fired up both the 32-bit and 64-bit R2013a. Neither sees the Fortran Composer with mex -setup. They both see the MSVC 2012 and MSVC 2010 but I get link errors when I try to compile C code with them.
Has anyone out there tried these combinations yet? Anything special I need to look out for as far as installation? (The IT folks installed everything, not me).
The Intel Fortran Composer 2013 seems to start up just fine as a studio app (brings up the Visual Studio development environment and I can compile Fortran code to 32-bit or 64-bit targets). The MSVC 2010 and 2012 also start up in the developer studio environment and I can compile C code with them. MATLAB gets through mex -setup with either MSVC 2010 or MSVC 2012 and seems to compile code via the mex command with either, but always fails to link.
Bottom line is, out of the box installation of R2013a and the mex setup files do not work for me for a supposedly supported combination and I was wondering if anyone had experience using these combinations yet. I would like to at least get a 32-bit suite working soon (before the trials expire).
