RE: IntelVisualFortran Compiler 11.1, 64bit-systems, NONMEM7

Hi Markus,

I have no experience with NM7, but we have installed NM6.2 with IVF 11.1 in
64 bit Windows7. We used the "Intel Fortran Command prompt" (from the Intel
Fortran Folder) for both installing and running NONMEM. By using this "IVF
command prompt", I understand we use the correct environment for FORTRAN


Earlier, I had the similar problems, then later was advised by some experts
to run from Intel Fortran command prompt, that the installation went without
any problem.


I think it is also good to note that we also selected "x64 Compiler and
Tools" while installing MS Visual Studio 2008 -professional edition, which
is required for 64 bit computers. By default this is selected in standard
edition of MS Visual Studio, but not in the professional edition of MS
Visual Studio 2008.

Subject: [NMusers] IntelVisualFortran Compiler 11.1, 64bit-systems, NONMEM7


dear NONMEM-users,

It is one month that I try installing NONMEM on a 64-bit WIN7 system. First
I understood that IntelVisualFortran Compiler 11.1 was necessary because
good-old CompaqVisualFotran is not
compatible with 64-bit systems. By installing IntelVisualFortran 11.1, it
became clear that Microsoft
software-development-kits (SDK) have also to be installed. After (seemingly)
successful installation
of SDK and IntelVisualFotran 11.1, the software indicates
installation-command to be "ifort".

However, when trying to install NONMEM7 via MS-DOS and typing:

SETUP7 D: C:\nm7 ifort y link reg norec i unzip.exe

...compiler check fails, and "ifort" is not recognized, respectively.

Since I am not getting further help from ICON, I wonder if other users have
encountered similar problems. Generally, installation with new
IntelVisualFortran Compiler seems rather complex, especially for setting the
environmental properties.

thanks for any idea about how to proceed

best regards
