Subject: [OMPI users] Anyone with Visual Studio + MPI Experience
From: Prentice Bisbal (prentice_at_[hidden])

Does anyone on this list have experience using MS Visual Studio for MPI
development? I'm supporting a Windows user who has been doing Fortran
programming on Windows using an ANCIENT version of Digital Visual
Fortran (I know, I know - using "ancient" and "Digital" in the same
sentence is redundant.)

Well, we are upgrading his equally ancient laptopa new one with Windows
7, so we installed Intel Visual Fortran (direct descendent of DVF) and
Visual Studio 2010, and to be honest, I feel like a fish out of water
using VS 2010. It took me a longer than I care to admit to figure out
how to specify the include and linker paths.

Right now, I'm working with the Intel MPI libraries, but plan on
installing OpenMPI, too, once I figure out VS 2010.

Can anyone tell me how to configure visual studio so that when you click
on the little "play" icon to build/run the code, it will call mpiexec
automatically? Right now, it compiles fine, but throws errors when the
program executes because it doesn't have the right environment setup
because it's not being executed by mpiexec. It runs fine when I execute
it with mpiexec or wmpiexec.
