This page is for supplementary information relating to the implementation described in Section 2.1 of the Installer's Note. It may be augmented over the life-time of the product if further pertinent information becomes available.
This implementation is a compiled, tested, ready-to-use version of the NAG Fortran Library that is considered suitable for operation on the computer systems detailed below:
hardware: Intel ia32 systems and compatible operating system: Microsoft Windows 32-bit editions (XP / Vista / 7 / 8 / 10 and compatible) Fortran compiler: Intel 32-bit Fortran Compiler 15.0 and compatible
Note: This list is not exhaustive; other combinations of hardware, operating system and compiler may also work.
This implementation has also been successfully tested using the following:
hardware: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4 GHz operating system: Microsoft Windows 7 Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Compiler 15.0 hardware: Intel Xeon CPU E31240 3.30GHz operating system: Microsoft Windows 8 Enterprise 32-bit Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Compiler Version 126.96.36.199 hardware: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Compiler Version 188.8.131.52 hardware: Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz operating system: Microsoft Windows 10 Enterprise 32-bit Fortran compiler: Intel(R) Fortran Compiler Version 184.108.40.206
Due to Microsoft refactoring the run-time libraries in Visual Studio 2015, the NAG static libraries in this product will only work with older versions of Visual Studio. Unfortunately, the legacy_stdio_definitions.lib file provided by Microsoft does not supply all the missing symbols required.
A possible workaround would be to link to the NAG dynamic link libraries (DLLs) provided in this product instead of the static libraries, as these are unaffected by the change. See Section 3.1 of the Users' Note for information on linking with the DLLs.
NAG has produced new implementations to work with Visual Studio 2015; the equivalent VS2015-compatible Library to this one is FLW3225DEL.
