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

Hi Serge,
Intel 11 is different (it no longer uses ifortvar.bat) and the other
complication is the use on 64-bit Windows 7. The instructions sent by Rik
earlier are applicable here. The suggestion sent by Martin Johnson will
also work, NONMEM can be installed and run from the Intel Build Environment
window. However, in Markus' case the linker component from Microsoft that
is required by the Intel compiler may not have been installed. USUALLY, the
Intel Fortran installation correctly configures the compiler and linker
environment for the Build Environment window (but not a common DOS window).

Dear Markus.

I do agree it is indeed an Intel issue and not an Iconus one but may be
Intel 10.1 is not too different from Intel 11.

Look at the path similar to mine in 10.1

C:\Program Files\Intel\Compiler\Fortran\10.1.011\IA32\Bin

I guess you will have something like

C:\Program Files\Intel\Compiler\Fortran\11.1\IA64\Bin


In the 10.1 version the batch file that sets the environmental variables is



If this is indeed the case, copy that file in the directory where you want
to run your nonmem model file.


Suppose it is c:\nm7.1.2


Go to DOS and then type





May be you can even copy the ifortvars.bat file into a new batch file you
would call ifort.bat and then run the nonmem default setup. I did not do it
but it may work.

By the way, if you run form a different directory, you have to copy that
batch file into that directory and run it every time. I did not succeed to
automate that environmental variable setting.

For some unknown reason, I have also to reset the environmental variables
every time I access again that directory (after I closed it).

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
