I am using PGI version 15.5 because of Fortran and C++ bundled together. After a failed drive, new drive and reinstallation, I could only build win32 applications. The SDK 8.1 that I installed would only install in the x86 Program files. Under more knowledgeable advice, I had the computer reimaged and started with a virgin machine. I installed NVidia CUDA 6.5. I was counseled to install PGI, and let the installation software determine if an SDK were needed. I received no such prompt. A few other things I was prompted whether to install or not. Afterward, I installed VS 2013.
My current problem, VS 2013 does not recognize any PGI products. Should I have installed VS 2013 first? Or is there a way to make PGI compilers available in the VS 2013 IDE?
