  • MS-MPI (v8) was built with cl 18.10.31117 (Visual Studio 2013) and linked using linker version 12.10.31117.0 (Visual Studio 2012)

  • The follow-on question then is:  Why is it not built against the latest version of Visual Studio, which presumably Microsoft would like all its customers to purchase?

  • Hi ,

    There are constraints on our build environments and other tools that we use that makes it non-trivial to go to Visual Studio 2015 for v8. We're looking at building against the newer compiler version for future versions of MS-MPI. Are you running into issues with building MS-MPI applications due to us not building against Visual Studio 2015?

  • I'm being pressured to upgrade to a newer version of Visual Studio by another group within my company who use a library for which I am responsible.  The library consists of both C and FORTRAN (I use Intel's FORTRAN compiler) code.  Do you have any notion of when a newer version of MS-MPI (build against VS 2015 or 2017) will be available?

  • Hi,

    We are looking at releasing a version of MS-MPI built against VS 2015 around the end of this year.
