I used the latest stable build of Open MPI (1.6-2).  I used Visual Studio 2005 (not Visual Studio 2005 x64).

Hi Nicola,

Which Open MPI version did you use?

What build type did you use for configuring it? For example, if you use cmake generator "Visual Studio 10 Win64" then the whole project is configured only for 64bit, even if you change c/c++ options. In order to use f77, which is only 32 bit available, you have to configure the whole project with 32 bit, i.e. cmake generator "Visual Studio 10".

I am trying to configure Open MPI using CMake 2.8.8 and Visual Studio 2005 in 32 bit mode, with Intel Fortran.  The machine is a 64 bit machine running Windows XP 64 bit, and VS has 64 bit support.
Configure works fine without f77 bindings, but as soon as I add this option, I get the error:

I am using all default options, except that I have specified a cmake_build_type of release.  Both the c and cxx compilers appear to be pointing to the 64 bit versions, but changing these to the 32 bit versions does not seem to matter.  
If I attempt to compile testFortranCompiler from a command prompt it compiles without any difficulties (ifort testFortranCompiler.f, with no other flags). 
Any ideas which options I am missing to get this to work?
